I’m proud to be a part of this group of developers. We worked hard, and didn’t take things too seriously! They are a pretty amazing group of people.
Our demo day was this week as well. We had a lot of the tech community come out in support, and even some future Iron Yard students. I really enjoyed walking people through our project. I’m super proud of what we built with only 2 and a half weeks using EmberJS and Node.js.
I’m also in week 4 of career support. I had my third interview with a Nashville-based tech company for a remote job as a junior dev, this time it was with their senior dev who would possibly be training and mentoring me. It was a great interview. He asked me more technical questions than the previous interviews. I didn’t answer them as strong as I wanted to, but I learned a lot from the experience. After our video chat ended, he messaged me and said that I reminded him of his favorite musician, Ben Caplan, especially with my beard and glasses… haha.
