After FOR-EH-VER, I’ve made another 8tracks playlist. Felt awesome. I’ve forgotten to listen to music.
4 hours ago, I just got an email from the Anita Borg institute that I’ve been awarded a scholarship by Juniper Networks to attend the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing! Couldn’t be more excited to attend the conference :D!
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
I’ve decided to delve deeper into the realms of User Experience (UX), and front-end development. I’ve Google searched like a maniac for the past few days, and for now I’ve decided to work on:
front-end development skills:
- learn about HTML5 & CSS3
- learn Ruby
- learn responsive web design
- learn how to develop mobile apps with HTML5
To achieve this I’ve signed up for a number of online courses/tutorials like codeacademy, teamtreehouse, and code school. On top of that I enrolled in a course at Udemy, Microsoft, and selected relevant videos at lynda (to which our school generously provides a free account, whoo :D). I’ll make sure to keep track of what other courses are offered throughout the year on relevant topics as well.
After all that’s done, I intend to keep my knowledge sharp by trying out new projects at thecodeplayer, and thinking about how I can accomplish bringing some of my own ideas to life.
AFTER all of that… my intention is to try and figure out how I can apply this knowledge to UX design.
Sounds like a blast to me (:!

This… is just too much to handle right now. I’m in love (:
