Preparing for webdev job interviews

I want to start a series of posts on how to prepare for job interviews as a junior webdeveloper.

This is something that seems way more mysterious to me than an algorithm… So that means: prepare, prepare, prepare!

I don’t knwo how I will organize this series yet. I might include posts like how to set up your LinkedIn profile, how to write your cv…

For now, I’ll share a link that I really like:

Felix Feng: I spent 3 months applying to jobs after a coding bootcamp. Here’s what I learned.

See you soon!

Stay focused! A customized starting-page

Yesterday I started creating this  to help me stay focused on my priorities whenever I start my browser.

my scustomized starting page
a starting page to stay focused online

I made this page, hosted it on github and bookmarked it as my starting page, and Voilà! 🙂

There’s room for improvement, you can contribute on the repo.

 

Google-Udacity Scholarship: Completed! What’s next?

Remember I won a Google Developer Challenge Scholarship?

I completed the course yesterday! I learned a lot, about ES6, Service Workers, IndexDB, caching… It was my first time using Udacity and I loved how clear it is. My only regret is that some lessons relied exclusively on videos and my learning type works best with text, that I can skim, skip or go back to. So a transcript would have been great in those cases.

The course was in fact so rich that I plan on doing it again soon. But for the moment, I’ll focus on honing my HTML + CSS skills and learning PHP and MySQL, in order to be ready for school. (D-35!!!)

I encourage anyone to submit an application to these Goodgle-Udacity scholarships, because you will greatly benefit from it.

I finished my second round of #100DaysofCode last week. I’ll start another one next monday! 🙂

It’s amazing to look back and see where I was 200 days ago. Of course, I have lots to learn, But I accomplished those first steps that are always huge, and sometimes stressful, when you begin something new. And I’m proud of what I achieved!
