The Early November

Hey guys, it’s been awhile. I started a new job but I’m currently on probation
for three months so I hope it leads me somewhere good. I been learning React
and working on a new social media app based on a MERN Stack video that I am
watching from udemy by Brad Traversy.

I’m also been applying for Front-End Dev Positions when I can but not actively
at least not until next month. Right now, I’m doing more support than I am touching
code. I like the team but I want to do more. I did more web stuff at work today
but that’s probably the most I’ll do at the moment.

December is when I’ll start packing out my resume and sending it over to
different places for a full-time dev job.

Well, The Early November is getting ready to drop their next album so that be pretty
cool. Anyways, follow along my github or my blog and keep up with what I am doing.

Things I been doing:
Learning React
Working through this MERN App Tutorial

Room for Growth

Some new updates with my Visual Novel. I released a private in-house beta for the crew
to see where I was going with the story. It’s nothing good. Just placeholder images
and misplaced story writing. I been taking a week to work on each segment before
going into the testing stage which will then go into a drafting stage. The plan
to release in the Winter is still on!

It’s been a little over a year since I started learning programming which turned
into taking a 6 month Front-End program. I been learning a lot about Programming
but I don’t know how it works. I decided to study more about Computer Science
and been debating going back to school for a B.S in Computer Science and maybe
try to get a Masters in Cyber Security (So my original B.A in Criminal Justice
degree is still relevant).

I’m going to start writing essays into my research. Stuff you will see in High
School/College. Research essays, compare and contrast essays and so on. I want
to make a difference in the community and contribute to the Open Source and spread knowledge.
Alan Turing and Bill Gates inspired me. I think I’m ready to take this seriously.

Maybe by the time I’m 45 I can get a Ph.D in Computer Science and get the Dr. Title.

Now, I’m self-learning to become a Computer Scientist. Let’s do this.

More Interviews and React

Hey guys, how’s it going? It’s been awhile but I been laid off and so I been
job searching like crazy. I applied for maybe more than 50 jobs since September 6th.
I gotten a response from 3 different places, 2 in Los Angeles and 1 back home in Arkansas.
The one in Arkansas was for a Mobile Developer position and with recommendations from
two of my friends that worked there, it’s a good chance but I’m not betting on it.

(I messed up during the coding interview)

The other two places in Los Angeles are interesting, one is a pet startup that works
on financing pet clinic payments and the other is an old software company that’s
older than me that builds inventory and management systems for companies.

I actually got one job offer right after the interview so I’m waiting to hear back
from the other two. I did the startup last Friday and I did the Mobile Dev one today.

So far so good.

I been learning React, especially since I heard the Mobile Dev Team will use React
Native. So I better start learning! Aside from FreeCodeCamp, Code Academy gave me 7 days free
trial for PRO, so I’m actually grinding that out.

I been job searching and studying the past weeks but things are looking up for now.
I’m still waiting to hit those big salary positions but man is it hard, especially
when a lot of juniors fresh out of bootcamp are taking over.

Until next time.

September and A Protype of My New Web App

Hey guys, I’m back with a new update. So I didn’t get any of those two jobs
I interviewed for but I’m still grinding out for new job postings. Anyways, it’s
September and I been doing some work with Python and finally pushed out a simple
Flask App.

It’s nothing special, just a site where people can post whatever they without
knowing who they are. Pretty much I wanted it to be a “Twitter where you can’t get fired”

It’s a work in progress but I’m getting there. It’s bare bones and I took the base
from a FreeCodeCamp Flask tutorial so I’m going to work on the design either later
today or tomorrow. Or sometime this week. It’s Labor Day Weekend so no work tomorrow!
(I’m looking for a higher paying job, Los Angeles is expensive)

Anyway here’s a link to the web app and see you guys soon!

So Far, So Good

Hello everybody, I been working on a simple Python script where you run it and
downloads random Shiba Inu pictures. I’m still testing it and been following
Automate the Boring Stuff as a supplement to my Python learning.

So far so good, I been working on my visual novel game and been studying Python
every chance I get. I haven’t heard back from the 2nd company I applied for but
I didn’t get the first job either. So aside from studying, I also hae been
looking for new jobs.

I’m in a comfortable spot where I can talk about the technologies I know. I’m
familiar with VueJS but I think it’s time for me to actually learn the fundamentals.

Stay tuned for my Shiba Python Script! It’s going to be cool

My Python Journey

Hey Guys, how it’s going! I released a new video about my Python Journey and I
will link it below! Not much is going on, I heard back from one interview and didn’t get the job
so now I’m waiting for the next one. I did 2 phone interviews so far so here hoping!
I’m planning on applying for more jobs and hoping to get something soon.

I’m going to invest into a MagPi subscription and also get a Raspberry Pi so I can work
on some cool projects. One of my projects that I’m hoping to do is make a dash cam.
LA is pretty crazy and I would love to have a dash cam that I made ready to go.

Aside from that, I’m also planning on making a retropi for the living room, which I think
will be pretty cool.

I took another quiz on Pluralsight and I’m an expert at Python! But take that with a grain
of salt because I have a lot to learn. Still studying now. Anyways, below is the link to my next
video and hope you guys enjoy it!

Python and the Future Me

Hey guys, got some big updates and that one of those updates is that I landed 2 interviews
one is with a web dev agency and one with a known company that many people should know.
More information about that later.

I started to learn Python as it was one of the easier languages to learn Oject Orientated Programming.
I really enjoy learning it and I plan on making my future websites with Flask, one of the Python Frameworks.
I’m not going to stray away from Javascript but my main focus for this year is going to be Python.

I also picked up VueJS which I kinda did a wwhile back but I been watching FCC videos
and building simple apps with it. So I decided to add VueJS to the list of frameworks to learn.

I been working a lot at work especially now that I transitioned from Javascript to
Python for my project.

My Short story horror RPG will now be a Visual Novel in the similar style of Umineko
and Higurashi. It’s going to be good. The game will be developed in
Ren’py which is based on Python 2.3 I believe.

More info on that later as well.

My new VLOG episode will come out soon! Stay tuned.

Your to go ide/text-editor?

Made this quick video and forgot to specify most of editors as text-editors and just called all of them as ides

Hey people, I recorded a new video about ides and text-editors but due to being a quick video that I did on the whim I forgot to call
most of them as ides instead of text-editors so that is my fault. I will probably redo the videos with better information sometime in the future.

You can watch the video below!

Horror Puzzle Game

Hey guys, thanks again for visiting my blog where I would talk about tech and
the day in the life of a Software Engineer.

Well I’m not yet a Software Engineer, I’m still just a freelancer and Intern.

Anyways, I started a start-up with some good friends of mine and we planned out
our first game, it’s going to be split into two games. One short horror puzzle
game developed in RPG Maker MV and the main game to be developed in Unity.

We are expecting the RMMV game to be released on Steam/Mobile by the end of the
year so please stay tuned! I have yet started production it but I will this

Hello World

Welcome to my Hexo World

My new blog is powered by Hexo, a nodeJS static site generator similar to
Jekyll but Jekyll hasn’t been working for me so I decided to switch to something
more JS friendly because Jekyll runs on Ruby.

Anyways, I am starting my new project with a new team that I hand picked and we are planning
on hitting the stages very soon.

We’re half way through 2018 so let’s see what we can make this year.
