Whole new dimension to being a web developer

I must do a quick thank you to all my friends and family. This article is dedicated to some local organizers and Yassin at SF Ionic Meet Up and Ruben from Code.io. Thanks for a great event.

I got stickers from Max from Drifty. I thought that was coolness. I know I’m new to the game but I hope it last forever. I hope to always be inspired and humbled by our work. The programming community is large and small much like San Francisco and the Bay Area. I was at a meet up at HR for Ionic with my instructor from GA. We got to hear some great announcements Ionic Market Place and Ionic 2. It seems like version 2 is right on time for Angular 2. Ionic 2 had mostly the same components with enhanced physics and improved performance. Max didn’t give a hard time table but hinted about shorter Alpha and Beta timelines. I think Ionic is powerful because it brings a whole new dimension to being a web developer. Mobile First developers can actually put apps up on Apple Store and Google Play. That opens up so many possibilities. I need to work on an Ionic project and give it a spin. I also want to give a shot out to the opening speaker Nic Raboy. He gave a live coding demo of an Ionic app. I he spoke about a interesting nosql database couchbase db. He said they are currently looking to hire but what I really found interesting was his blog. He has some really tight posts. All in all a good day.

I would like to give thanks to everyone who helped me this week. In no particular order Rich and Steve from Node School SF.

I loved when Rich read the code of conduct for each person who arrived late. The code of conduct made me feel welcomed and set the tone for a safe enviroment to learn. Traffic was crazy this weekend. It's Pride weekend and the Supreme Court decision was right on time. I have to thank @smallhaxe for the welcome. We had a few talks about node and file structures. My classmates are awesome and the instructors a just wonderful people. This was my first week of bootcamp and it was amazing how much information we that is floating out there. Here are a few resources that helped me. MDN great for Javascript. Bootstrap great for CSS.

I would like to give thanks to Joe Blau and Maurice Cherry. To all the listeners and my family. I am inspired and filled with creation.

I was listening to this podcast and I was like, Yo I really like what Joe is saying. I can relate to his hustle and fascination. The curiosity and amazement of riding the wave of intense education. A wealth of experience from all angles of his life. It made me think of a lot of things. One of which was to keep at the blogcast and be thankful to those that helped me. I find it honestly refreshing to me when a person give some acknowledgement to whom they grew and fellowshipped with. Which reminds me to add these details to my plan.
Joe Blau was on Revision Path podcast. Episode 65

I would like to thank my family and friends for their help and encouragement to purse my dreams of being a developer

I got accepted into a Web Development Immersive Bootcamp. I am glad my previous work has paid off. Now, as I look into the future there is so much further to go. I could be daunting when thinking about where to begin. So I will have to make a list of goals. In my school I am going to learn Javascript and Ruby. I will also learn the Rails, Angular, Express, Node, Mongodb, Postgres, and testing in Mocha. I am also interested in Famous.js, React.js and ES6 compilers like Babel. I don’t want to get stuck in liking everything new and not mastering the current. It will be a twelve week intensive program. I need to have a job at the other end. I have quit both my jobs making over lets just say 75 grand to go back to school. I am honestly giving it my best chance. Wish me luck.

This is relaunch of my personal blog. I would like to remember to thank people who have added to my growth.So, I say thanks!

Today I went to my hacker school. I said I can do this, the people are there. The craziest thing about it, was a good feeling. Just walking in there I knew I could just bring a lot to the cohort. I am already envisioning them. A few good thoughts came to me, why doesn't this text editor not have the a dictionary/thesaurus? Not that thought but I walked in and the front was very low key. I missed the first time up the block. I liked that quality. The thing that got me most, I saw people I saw on the internet. Amazing. I mean I saw someone who answered the online group video conference question. Peace, I gotta go put in work.
