Code Like A Girl

One week to go

This time next week I’ll start a full-stack bootcamp program at The Iron Yard. I’m starting to feel more excited than anxious as my prep time winds down.

In anticipation, I have studied a bit of HTML, CSS, Git, and I’ve glanced at Ruby and Java. I’ve spent a good chunk of time with JavaScript. So much time that when my husband’s alarm went off this morning I was dreaming about how the if/else statement for the alarm might work in JS. 

I’ve been committed to this cohort since late last year when the classes were either Front-End or Back-End. Now they have restructured to a full-stack program. JavaScript was the most intimidating part of a Front-End curriculum for me, so I’ve focused on that. I hope I don’t come to regret not spending more time with back-end languages.
