I haven’t written in a very long time. Adam and I just realised that six months ago today we started our jobs here at Front Digital. How cool is that!? I recently wrote a blog post for Escape the City, an awesome company that I’ve been a fan and member of since 2010. It might be of some interest to anyone curious about my transition from historian to coder, and I know there are a ton of other really inspiring blogs on their site as well, so do have a browse around. You can read my article here.
I was also lucky enough to receive the first General Assembly London Alumni Award from the Regional Director Matt Cynamon at the last student graduation, as was the wonderful George Gray, a grad from the first WDI here in London. I will also begin as a teaching assistant for the Front End Web Development class at General Assembly beginning 28th of April. Best part is, I will be TA-ing for James Willock, one of my teachers from WDI! We are gonna make an awesome team, so I’m super excited about this. I did a short TA session with Codefirst a few weekends ago too, which was very cool and has inspired me to do more teaching (especially for girls).
So all great things this month. I am off to America for Easter holidays and am very much looking forward to this summer. Tonight I’m off to meet up with some former course-mates I haven’t seen in ages, which will be a nice reminder of where we all were 6 months ago. Happy Spring everyone!
