Rube on Rails: Graduation

rube-on-rails:

"And in the midst of this wide quietness/A rosy sanctuary will I dress/With the wreath’d trellis of a working brain," - Keats

I’m long overdue for an update. I graduated Dev Bootcamp June, 21st; that means I’m already done with Phase 4, the optional 3 week-extension where topics like…

Eyes on Silicon Valley: Last day at Dev Bootcamp. Time to move on !!

And finally, last Thursday, after 12 weeks, was my last day at Dev Bootcamp.

After these 12 weeks, I don’t consider myself a fabulous programmer, but I do consider myself a great beginner with an incredible hunger to keep on learning and improving my technical skills.

On Thursday, we had…

Also: Being Present

roybahat:

Got this email from a CEO I respect. Struggling with one of the essential issues for any working person.

Respect went up 2x when I got it:

Team — Now that some of the chaos is over, I need to focus a bit more on the family — or at least give them the time they deserve. To that, I am going to…

Katey Basye: We have a lot of work to do.

kateybasye:

Final projects are over, Banana Slugs are graduated, sleep has been caught up on, and I’m here, facing endless possibilities—which translate into endless things to learn and do.

Our project ended up great. SchoolSay is an education news aggregate that pulls from Tumblr, Twitter, Instagram, and…

Swimming Through Code Lullabies: End of Final Week: Farewell, friends.

saintsintosea:

Tomorrow I wake up with no alarm clock. For the first time in a little over 2 months I no longer have to wake up at precisely 7:30 AM so I have enough time to get ready, eat, and walk to Dev Bootcamp.

It’s been an amazing journey. A lot can be said, let’s see.

I love you all

(That’s me…

What is family? They were the people who claimed you. In good, in bad, in parts or in whole, they were the ones who showed up, who stayed in there, regardless. It wasn’t just about blood relations or shared chromosomes, but something wider, bigger. We had many families over time. Our family of origin, the family we created, and the groups you moved through while all of this was happening: friends, lovers, sometimes even strangers. None of them perfect, and we couldn’t expect them to be. You can’t make any one person your world. The trick was to take what each could give you and build your world from it.

Matt Barackman: Overcoming Obstacles

mattbarackman:

This past weekend, everyone in my “Red Admiral” cohort of DBC was given our mid-point assessment. It was the last hurdle to clear before being fully accepted into the program and I’m happy to say I passed.

They didn’t give much feedback, but I felt that my performance was really solid. I’d love…

Eric at Dev Bootcamp: Onward to phase 3!

ericatdbc:

Today the Banana Slugs graduated, which signified for us, the Golden Bears, that we are now the senior figures in the building. Almost all of the Banana Slugs are sticking around for Phase 4, an optional additional 3 weeks of learning, but students while they’re in phase 4 are looked at less as…

King Julian: Crowded, but that's okay

juliantai:

Today I graduated from Dev Bootcamp and I can honestly say I learned a lot. Last time I did say it was crowded, which is true. But the more people I got to know, the less it became an issue. I felt closer to more people as I learned more about them. In the end we’ve learned to be a big family….

Hello Arch Enemy: Some tips on how to be a better listener

helloarchenemy:

I can’t think of anything more fundamental to the success of a startup than good communication. Good communication is so important whether between co-founders, between the company and its customers, between founders and mentors/investors/employees, between founders and family members or between…

Hello: Ouch, my brain

jonny-utah:

We are deep in Rails’ territory. I don’t know if it’s from a lack of sleep or thinking all day, but my brain is starting to hurt after about 530/1730. I went home at 715 today and the day before. I like going home early sometimes because I don’t blow cash on food, but I feel like I’m blowing my…

Just Say Wen: Cookie jar

dawenster:

They say that shooting a basketball is as easy as pretending to reach into a cookie jar on a high shelf. I don’t know about you, but Michael Jordan doesn’t really look like he’s simply reaching into a cookie jar to me. Actually, it kinda looks like he’s trying to stop the cookie jar from…

There’s DBC in the middle left (tallest spire in the shot).  I’m sitting in the top of the spire as I type (I’m not, the office is on the second floor).

Ben on Rails: Day 18

benonrails:

Another great day at DBC. We made a user-less bit.ly clone (url shortening service) that my pairing partner and I named “Shortificationify => Shortify”. Then we learned about user authentication and encrypting passwords (we chose the Bcrypt gem that employs salted encrypted passwords that are more…
