It’s already July 2014. At work today, we were reminded at our morning meeting that we are fast reaching the end of the 3rd quarter of the year. Time really flies.
So to do a very brief recap of the start of 2013 to now.
1. Applied for DBC, got in. Hooray!
2. Went to DBC, asked what the hell I got myself into. Kidding.
3. 9 weeks of intense studying.
4. Came out with basic knowledge of the web, Ruby, JS, HTML, CSS and RoR
5. Got a job that needed me to code in Java and work in a linux environment and a new MVC framework, was tough but pulled through and glad I got a chance to learn Java. The boss wasn’t kidding when he said it was going to be a tough journey but it was worth every minute of it.
6. 6 months into job, got moved into a Scala and another MVC framework. Again was tough but finally reached a point where I’m comfortable enough to start being able to get a breather and really enjoy the coding process.
Often times I still think about how lucky I am to have been able to switch careers and land a job with an environment that really believes in personal growth of everyone in the company. I’m enjoying the ride and look forward to what else the future might bring.
