Am solidly now in Part 2 of Phase 2. Finished up the bootstrap site for my friend’s biz, and have gotten it up on a hosted git page. Did my counseling session; nice to have ticked both things off the list. Took an evening class on Git and Github and got introduced to GitPod, which was pretty cool.
Now cruising right along at 71% in my Intro to WordPress course. For sure, the prior experience I’ve had with it helps. It’s nice to be working on something that I already kind of get. All the PHP is new to me, though. Have done some good troubleshooting in our Slack channel with another student, which was great as we helped each other and didn’t just depend on a teacher.
We’ve been talking about and working on The Loop in WordPress. It’s a great lens through which to see my life these days.
While the job is my current job, not a web dev job :
- study as my ass off at Skillcrush and other online and in-person training
- learn tons of new things and make small but steady gains
- try not to get discouraged
- try not to pitch a fit at current job
Endwhile job equals web dev job ;
I mean, duh, I know it’s not that simple and just switching jobs/careers will make everything so 100% awesome that I will be spilling champagne everywhere. I also know that there will be a loop of looking for and getting a job. But it WILL be super nice to get out of this loop and feel like I am moving forward career-wise.
If anyone is down with recreating the above gif with me once I do get a new job, just let me know. 🙂
