After a few years of teaching web development bootcamps, both online and in-person, I've started to branch out and do live code projects and walkthroughs on Twitch!
I've finally decided on the project I want to develop for the Dev + Twilio Hackathon: A Mood Tracking SMS application to make it easy, even in low-bandwidth or low-wifi situations, to be able to check-in on how you're feeling and see trends over time...
Michael Kennedy over at talkpython.fm and I had a good chat just talking about how we have adopted over the course of our careers to being remote, our beginnings in programming, and what we can do to support those who have never worked before adopt to this lifestyle in this time of Coronavirus.
The synopsis for the episode is so perfect that I'm going to share it here:
"Jayson Phillips is a self-proclaimed graduate of the University of Barnes and Noble. This week we talk to Jayson about working for a bootcamp, learning to code, and dig into some fun tech like flutter, Golang, and Rust."
While in the midst of trying to
flatten the curve with our shelter-in-place order in California, I was fortunate enough to have 16 bright spots during this time. They are the 16 awesome developers who just completed their final projects in the Full Stack web development cohort I taught at University of Denver!
I had the immense pleasure of speaking with Scott Hanselman on the topic of being a remote employee in a technological function. Scott's being doing this forever, and I've been doing it for a couple of years now, so it was a great exchange of ideas and experiences of what has worked and not worked for us as professional WFHers.
