This post is a continuation of my last, which focused on setting up a Django project. The project that I’m currently working on is a Django backend for a fantasy hockey application. I’ve already built out a lot of this in Ruby on Rails, so it’s mostly a project for…

So we’re going to take a bit of a detour this week. I’ve still been working on the Rails / React version of my fantasy hockey app, and I’ve got some cool stuff to say about that, but I’m also really excited to have an interview for a back end…

This week I made something of a reusable form for my Matchup class in my fantasy hockey app. I’ve been wanting to do something like this, but hadn’t really had the time to think it through during the course of the bootcamp. Pretty much the idea comes from Ruby on…

I started learning React Hooks this week, so lets go over that in this week’s post. Just to say it up front, I’ve really only been looking at these for a few days, so please don’t use this as a reference. That said, the flow isn’t that much different from…

I may have lied a bit last week: I’d said I was looking to write this blog on testing Rails and React applications, but working on my fantasy hockey app led more towards setting up the front end and fetcher services on the back end. So I’ll try to dive…

I’m at the end of week one of my job search, the part of the boot camp that I’ve been most nervous about. I’ve never felt particularly comfortable networking and interviewing, and the career services path at Flatiron emphasizes networking as key in the job search. …

So last week I passed my final project review, and should be set for graduation this coming month. The last several months have really flown by, and I’ve learned a ton along the way. …

Well, I’ve made it to the final project. All there is left is to complete the review and I’m on to graduation from the Flatiron School software engineering program. Over the last few weeks I’ve been working on an application utilizing React and Redux on the front end and Rails…

So tonight I’m wrapping up my Javascript project at the end of phase four in the Flatiron Software Engineering course. Over the last week of working on this, I’ve learned a ton (starting with “listen to Chris and don’t try to implement authentication in this project”). I decided to move…

So back again, we’re in the last day of phase 3, and I’m wrapping up work on the third project in Ruby on Rails (totally not procrastinating on writing the blog of course). Sticking with my theme, I’ve made something of a fantasy hockey application. The application pulls game data…
