“Friday Feels”-My Experience in Coding Bootcamp

My journey through Flatiron School’s Software Engineering Bootcamp has been an emotional rollercoaster, to say the least. There have been lots of struggles learning a subject I was not familiar with yet alone 4 languages. Before I decided to pursue a career as a Software Engineer, I have had many majors during college, indecisive on what I wanted to do, none of them remotely related to coding. Here lies the beginning of my struggles.

Phase 1: Ruby

Phase 2: Rails

“If I don’t face this now and overcome it, I will never be able to overcome anything”.

After this change of mindset, I realized that with adequate effort, Phase 2 with Rails was definitely easier than starting fresh in Ruby. It was all a change in perspective and focus, that brought results. Besides topics in user authorization, cookies, and session, I was pretty solid in Rails. These topics I wasn’t fully understanding really did get back at me later on.

Phase 3: Javascript with HTML

Phase 4: React

Phase 5: Capstone Project

I’ll take that as a compliment, my dude.

It felt great getting things to work, using things I’ve never used before, and just working on my project. It’s two days before graduation and presentations, and I’m already looking forward to working on my own project with no pre-arranged requirements. Well, projects are good and all, but I definitely need a job, so yes, I will focus on that as well.
