Is Live!

In preparation for a focused effort to join the job hunting front, I have completed my personal site. In order to reduce the amount of time it would take to build it from scratch I found a template that I liked and deployed it on Digital Ocean to diversify my experiences. I also experimented with using a one click WordPress set up just to see what it was about. I was impressed by the easy of use that the software provides and will definitely investigate it further down the road since many sites use it. Major Overhaul Incoming!

During my downtime waiting for responses, I will be performing a major overhaul on the Dojo After Dark website. I am going to complete the front end views and turn the project into a MERN Stack (swapping out Angular for React). This past week I attended a hiring fair and noticed that most of the companies that were hiring for Front End Developers were seeking out people with knowledge in React. From my research I have noticed a big trend towards that tool so I will be implementing it into this project.

On a side note, this past week’s first Book Club meeting was awesome! During the overhaul I will be updating the notes to be displayed on the site and share the exercises that we did as a group. I am looking forward to the next meeting on Wednesday. I believe a lot of people will benefit from attending these gatherings. It is especially helpful because it helps us overcome parts of the books that prove to be extremely challenging or difficult to understand and it just makes the whole learning experience a lot more engaging and fun!

After attending the hiring fair this week I have gained a better insight as to what developer path I would like to go down for now. I know I wanted to focus on become a Full Stack Developer, but after seeing the demand for more Front End Developers, I decided to follow that path first. I am definitely a more visual person. It has become more obvious to me as I go deeper into the world of computer programming. I enjoy using mind mapping as my main form of note taking for instance. So on my road to become a Black Belt Full Stack Developer I am going to start at the front.

Stay tuned for more updates!
