It’s week 10 of 12 at Code Louisville, and I think I’m going to make it through this thing! I’ve officially completed the entire Code Louisville Front End Web Development Track on Treehouse. Treehouse advised me of my completion, and I promptly tweeted it out to the world!
I earned my first badge on Treehouse on September 22, 2016, and I completed the full Code Louisville Front End web Development Track on March 16, 2017. Wow, I’ve been doing this for about 6 months now! Time flies when you’re having fun and learning how to code!
There are still two weeks left of Code Louisville classes. I’ve begun Angular Basics which is an optional course, and I am spending the majority of my time coding my individual project for Code Louisville which must be turned in by March 31st.
This week I attended the JS Lou Meetup where they had a panel discussion about developer jobs in Louisville. It was packed! Standing room only!
I’m also currently working on a couple of side projects. One is a WordPress website project working with another developer from Code Louisville. The second is a group that sprung up as a result of Aaron Johnson’s suggestion at the JS Lou panel to “create groups of 4 to 6 and work together on a project.” I think Aaron suggested this at least five or six times, so it kind of stuck. Thanks Aaron, we heard you!
Our new small group of coders are trying to decide on a project. It will probably be for a non-profit group that has reached out to Brian Luerman at Code Louisville for developers. This seems like a win-win. We get to put our new skills to work, we get to practice working with other developers on a real-world project, and a non-profit gets a free web development project completed.
That’s it for Code Louisville this week. See you all next week!
