  • Says there was zero job search support for her from HR!!
    • She got 3 job offers within two months of finishing.
    • She was offered a job recently that is +45k what she is making currently (wow)
    • She says I can find a job in ATL no problem.
    • Hack Reactor vs General Assembly vs Digital Crafts (HR is like GA Tech computer science versus another bootcamp that would be like UGA computer science)
    • She’ll always outwork you. (she’s a beast)
  • I had setup a tour of the co-working space Switchyards, but since my tour ran long I was late. I did however get inside and took a quick look. It’s a nice place. Not sure if I would join. Traffic might be a bitch in the morning and evening in that area (next to the SkyView Ferris Wheel)

  • On flight to Rhode Island I didn’t get any wifi with Delta so I read Chapter 5 of Eloquent Javascript. It’s a damn tough chapter.
  • Later I worked through the first three exercises, and I am surprised that I got through them so far. Maybe I am getting better.
