I got my first paycheck after career change!

It is neither a dev job nor a huge amount, but still, it feels really amazing. ✨🥳

Congratulation! That's amazing. So it was THE first talk EVER, right? So cooool.
I just saw Codeland about one hour before. Same on me.
Really want to hope I also to give a talk there one day!

Yes, it was my first! (I've spoken at a Meetup, but never at a conference).

Good luck to you! I'm sure you'll get there!

I had a great phone interview on Tuesday! So great that they asked me to come back for an in person interview/coding challenge! I’ll be spending next week getting mentally prepped for that because my in person interview is on Monday the 5th. Woo! This job would be a huge step forward in my web development career.

  • Learned Bootstrap 4.
  • Recreated my portfolio using bootstrap 4.
  • Learned about the SOA (Service Oriented Architecture) knowing that i will be working on a project that contains: a mobile app + a website, and i hadn't have the slightest idea of how it should work together before.

I finally got around to learning basic SASS (I've been meaning to do so for a while now), and then immediately applied that knowledge to improve load times for the web app I've been working on by using SASS imports to cut down on the total number of style sheets that need to be fetched. In all, it made the app load almost 3.5 seconds faster on a simulated 3G network.

My article on the 10 NASA rules pissed a lot of people, it's pretty awesome to confront an idea to so many people and to see you've got the finger onto something (or maybe that I'm plain stupid, another option to be considered)

This week my team and really my whole company had a HUGE product release and launch that went super smoothly and I'm really happy about it! I lead one of the teams that was responsible for a lot of the work and I couldn't be prouder of my team and what we were able to build!

I work at Betterment and we launched a NEW Savings product that took a ton of work from a lot of different teams internally! We ALSO announced a new Checking product that is coming out in the near future!
You can signup for the checking waitlist and find out more about Savings, and our new Everyday offerings below!
(NOTE: This following IS a personal referral link that will boost me higher in the checking waitlist)

I spent the whole week at work creating e2e tests with cypress.
Not the most funny thing to do, but it's a big deal because it would allow us to test really important user flows before each deployment!
Learned so much! :)

ive got quite a few.

crossed my monthly target of 50 articles (1000 words) for a client im currently ghostwriting for.

got an offer for a new writing gig with much better perks than current one. still reviewing. will most likely say yes.

played my fav songs of beyonce's new album 2000+ times, basically humming them in my sleep now.

was able to spend more time with my dog. really missed her!
