I have been running flat out for two weeks straight.
I am exhausted.
I spent last weekend in NYC, dragging a laptop around Manhattan and trying to learn a little Ruby on Rails. It was great and horrible at the same time. I walked more in 8 hours than I have in 2 months (thank goodness i wore flat shoes!). I ate the worst food that I have ever eaten in my life. And I got dehydrated for the first time.
It was rough.
By Sunday 8 am I was peeing yellow sludge, starving for real food and my feet were aching. but I had a better plan for what i wanted to do with my programming future. Aand it involved Ruby On Rails.
I fell in love.
And I changed my plan.
But I didn’t want to give up coding. I really enjoy it. I like creating things and having a finished product that i can show people. I ike feeling accomplished.
And here we are with Ruby on Rails. my new love. my new boyfriend.
So my new plan is to master Ruby on Rails and load up my CodePen so a future employer can see what I can do. because my one day training wiht RailsBridge NYC told me I can be a programmer. This is my future .
Here are some great resources for learning Ruby on Rails.
RailsBridge This was my first in-person training and the best intro I could have had
Codecademy I dont know if i love them or FreeCodeCamp more but i do know they make learning coding not so terrifying
Learn Ruby the Hard Way Because you can only learn by doing
If you have any suggestions for me please email me… I can use all the advice possible. And I would love to see how you are progressing.
