Another year has come and gone and oh what a year it was. Ignoring all of the political and social things that happened last year I thought it was a good year. Well for me at least. Some notable highlights from my 2017 that I’ll expand on in the future include: I got my first […]
One of the reasons I’ve been so quiet lately is that I’m slowly creating a new version of the website from scratch. In the previous post I mentioned all of the technologies I planned to implement. After some thought I just can’t in good conscience make the website that way. One of the traits a […]
Well I can’t say much is happening on the site right now. I have several posts and a few series lined up but as some of you know I started a new job in June and it’s taken me a while to get used to my new sleep and work schedule. Usually by the time […]
This post can get very long due to the number of my goals so I’ve decided that the following will be the new format of the quarterly reviews. I’m just going to have little blurbs under each one to quickly explain what’s happened or is happening. Comment below if you got here from the CodeNewbie chat, […]
If you haven’t kept up with my Twitter then surprise I have a job! I started work as a software developer at a local hospital last Monday. I’m not going to disclose their name because right now I work for a staffing company and I’m based in the hospital. Fingers crossed though that I might get […]

If you’ve been a software developer for more than a month then you’ve undoubtedly heard about bidding websites such as UpWork. Regardless how you may feel about them they can be useful especially to software developers who are just starting out and trying to build up their resume/portfolio of work. Today I’m going to show […]
As I once said in my post “Goals for 2016“, I don’t have New Year’s resolutions I have goals. Resolutions are great but I’d prefer using the smart goals method to help make my goals more of a reality. I didn’t do that badly last year but I definitely need more accountability in my goals this […]
At the beginning of last year, I made serval somewhat simple goals. I implemented the smart goals system to help me accomplish them which basically states that all goals should be realistic, measurable, and have a due date. Instead of saying you’ll lose weight this year you’d say “I’ll weigh X by this specific date.” […]
