The last post I published was Day 51, which was the first day of the MEAN stack. Now it’s the weekend after Day 65… Three weeks of MEAN have passed, I’m now a triple black belt, and I’m about to get started on my last project at Coding Dojo. Before I reveal the target clone of this project week though, I want to catch up on the events of the mean stack. I actually have a whole slew of unfinished drafts that I’ve been typing up during my commutes, so I’m going to fix those up a bit and start pumping them out in chronological order. The algorithms my cohort have been working on this month were especially interesting, so I plan to separate out my mentions of them into separate posts that will come later.

Also, now that I’m just about done with my Coding Dojo bootcamp experience, I plan to transition this blog into a more freeform tutorials/observations/job hunting/work experience/developer journey kind of thing. Basically, I’m not sure what it’s going to look like in the future, but I do want to keep blogging so I’ll just go with the flow.
I’ve been failing pretty hard at keeping the blog up to date recently. Now that I’m just starting the MEAN stack I’ll try to keep at it again. Before I get into day 51 and beyond though, I wanted to do a quick recap of the last week and a half of the Ruby stack. Continue reading
As of today it’s been a week since the end of the Python stack. I’ve been too busy enjoying my time off to write any blog posts. This week is probably the only week off that I’ll get for the whole duration of the bootcamp, so I’ve done my best not to waste it. I’m sitting in my wife’s office as I type this because she’s taking a half day for Continue reading
When I arrived at the Dojo yesterday (a bit late), I was surprised by how empty it was. Turned out everyone was holed up in the WebFun room already started on their belt exams! Or at least everyone that showed up was. I missed the discussion on Thursday because I was busy working with the Coding Dojo alumni Continue reading
First thing in the morning, Instructor Fiaz graded my belt exam with me. I got a perfect 10/10! Booyah. I officially have my black belt in the Python stack. Now the fun can finally begin! Continue reading
I took the belt exam on Wednesday of Python week 3. I was a bit nervous going in that there would be something I had never seen before and I would not be totally prepared for it. Or maybe I would screw up the deployment. I was actually right on both counts, lol. After starting the exam I quickly realized that I would need to Continue reading
My code review with Fiaz went well today. I showed him the completed belt reviewer and dojo secrets assignments and he determined I’m plenty ready to take the belt exam tomorrow. I showed him some of my Swift code too and he seemed impressed that I had gotten as far as I did with only self teaching. He actually laughed out loud when I told him I Continue reading
I made it to the belt reviewer today! The objective is to make a fully featured book review site. Users can register, log in, view book reviews, view book pages, visit user profiles, and create new reviews. Supposedly, the belt exam for the python stack is easier than the belt reviewer, so if I can finish the belt reviewer satisfactorily, Continue reading
