It’s been just over three months since I started as the first software engineer at MarketSquare, and I guess that means it’s been just over six months since I first started at Coding Dojo. I’ve been keeping super busy at work and at home this whole time so my blog has kinda fallen by the wayside, but I haven’t given up on it yet! Continue reading
Okay, I just want to start by saying sockets are awesome! I love sockets. We used sockets for a single day at the Dojo before moving on to MongoDB, but man did they leave a good impression.
