I finally graduated! I'm not sure if I was more excited about that or the fact that I could finally spend all waking hours of the day doing something I loved.
Basically, in short, I fell in love with coding in my last year of EE and decided to drop all the hard work I put in to startup a EE career to pursue this passion.
So I let my boss know that I would not be returning to work after I graduated to pursue my passion. She wished me the best of luck. I finished up my final exams. Graduated and now here I am, jobless and learning more and studying more than I ever have before. I also built an app for a startup I worked on with a friend in a incubator program over the summer but more on that another day.
Front End Web Dev
Also, in my quest to find new things to learn, I stumbled across cloud engineering and I found it quite fascinating. So in following this curiosity, I found this cool program called AWS re/Start run in partnership with YES(Youth Employment Services). I applied and after some tests and interviews, I was in!
(I will start a series to discuss this further for those that are interested.)
Google's 30 Days of Cloud
Now another cool program I found was this 30 Days of Cloud that I found out about because I am still part of the discord server for the Google Student Developer Club of my university. It's pretty neat because they have 4 tracks and it runs 4 days a week for a month and you get to learn:
- Cloud Computing Fundamentals
- Infrastructure in Google Cloud
- Networking and Security in Google Cloud
- Data, ML and AI in Google Cloud
and the coolest part...it is all for free!
(I will start a series to discuss this as well so stay tuned!)
FREE Flutter Apprentice Book
Yup, I am just raining down gems today. Another cool learning opportunity for you all. The Flutter team has partnered with Ray Wenderlich to offer this book for free until January 6th, 2022! I am already pretty decent with flutter but I figured it wouldn't hurt to read it in my spare time and watch the book club they have going on till Jan 6th.
Learning web dev and the cloud full time and hoping to secure my first job in this new industry early next year.
Until then, onwards and upwards we go! 🚀
