Graduation from GA and onwards…

Feels a little different now having graduated from General Assembly, a Coding Bootcamp. Aside from the daily routine of 9 to 5 classroom days, I feel the world is a lot more different as well compared to how it was just 3-4 months ago before I started the bootcamp. Tech is moving so fast nowadays and I realize how important and critical it is for me to catch up and learn new tools or get left behind.

I’ve been kind of overloaded with information while in GA and I can’t say that I’m completely fluent at everything. Some materials I grasped quicker than others while some still gives me headaches. Still, I feel like I got a great starting point or exposure to everything… at least the Web based part of Programming and Software Development. Is it bad to say that while I had fun in GA learning mostly Web Development, mostly due to the problem solving aspect of coding, that it’s still not exactly what I’m looking for? Probably bad for any Recruiters reading this, but it’s also why I chose to call myself a Game Developer or Software Developer over a Web Developer.

However, it wasn’t all for nothing. Aside from all the Web based tools I got exposed to, I’m particularly happy to have got more fluency in GitHub and popular languages like Python & JavaScript. It’s always great to dabble in other languages outside of my initial language of C# when I first started learning the Unity Game Engine years ago. I don’t think one can go wrong with that. I also even learned what it was like to collaborate with others on projects. Heck, this WordPress Blog was customized with CSS, something I definitely wouldn’t have been able to do prior to my experience in GA.

So why a Blog? Well… I’m very certain I’m a high tier introvert and I felt this would be a nice way to express myself for those who care to read as I’m not the most articulate in person. It’ll also allow readers to get to know a bit more about me and my journey towards my dream and passions.
