“The first step towards getting somewhere is to decide that you are not going to stay where you are.”
- Work is still cool
- Drones are cooler
- Continuous education is the coolest
Blah blah blah, nothing that sparks my memory for this past week. It could be my bad memory or a not so exciting week that makes the exciting ones better.
Without darkness there cannot be light.
Mother F-ing Fire this week. Love it.
Work was fun and confusing at time. I knew we had multiple servers but didn’t realize how confusing it was going to be one day. Glad it didnt last very long. I had a stumble at one point because there were multiple staging servers that I was working with, our team’s sever and the Cars Direct staging server. After figuring it out, asking questions and seeking clarifications, I was able to keep on truckin. Also helped a coworker with an algorithm that checked if a sequence of numbers would be strictly ascending if we had removed a single number.
Something new I used: Deployment tools, easy peasy and pretty cool.
So far I am still diggin life as a developer. It might get boring sometimes, but it definitely does not stay boring for very long.
This weekend another drone session. A few crashes and broken props, but nothing major. Practice, practice and practice. Repetition, persitence and determination. All it takes to get good at anything, anywhere.
This week was fire and I saw it in the sky.
This has been a productive week.

I’m getting more comfortable navigating and searching through the bazillion lines of code. I am starting to identify patterns allowing me to move a lot quicker through the various issues I am tasked with.
I thought I saw a ghost in my code this week. I learned about A/B Testing the hard way.
