In my last blog post, Week 7 of My 12-Week Programming Bootcamp , I described how intense that week was. Actually, every week is intense. I’d say everyday, even. Its a grueling program where you cover a new topic in the morning, whether that’s a new language, framework, or library, then do lab work in the afternoon– working on your homework assignment which has to be pushed to your Github repo that same night!
This is week 7 of my 12-week programming bootcamp. What a ride it has been. I intended to publish this post and started on it at the beginning of the week. But after just the first two sentences, it is now suddenly Saturday at almost midnight.
The past week was that intense. Actually, all days are when you’re in bootcamp. People ask me all the time, “how was school?” or “how’s schooling?.” Well I can say that it definitely is not school. Its bootcamp… there’s a big difference.
This great post by Eric Eriksson perfectly defines what a Product Designer is. As someone with a diverse skill set resulting from a wide range of experiences and a deep desire to bring products to market, I couldn’t agree more.
[Below is an email from my brother, Rallee, describing the fortuitous events this past Memorial Day weekend in regard to my mom’s kidney transplant. We are all thankful and happy.]
For those of you who don’t know me, I’m Rallee, Raquel’s fifth son. And in case you haven’t heard, my mom received a call at 2:30 am Friday morning letting her know that there is a possible kidney donor, and that she had to go to MUSC at 7:30 am to find out if it is a match. Well it was a match and the following morning, she underwent kidney transplant. As you can imagine, this is far from a simple operation, and a quick and difficult decision was necessary.
