Intense Code School bootcamp

Intense Code School Bootcamp at Dixie State University

We’ve been powering through the intense Code School bootcamp at the Dixie State campus.

Code School was designed to help the participants get a job in the web design industry.

We’re going over a javascript framework called “Vue” that is getting more and more popular by the day.

I’m confident in what I’ve learned so far, and I’m excited to start on our final project this Friday.

Code School has been a great experience, and has helped me understand the industry standard for today’s web based programs.

Code Camp

Competing At Southern Utah Code Camp #bringyourgenius

For those who don’t know, Code Camp is an event held in St. George, Utah, in which programmers and designers work for 24 hours on a small project.

After the event is over, the projects are judged.

For my project, I worked with Eric Ostrom on integrating busybusy’s time keeping API (where I work) with Slack, which is a very popular chat client.

This allows you to clock in and out, where the data is used later to determine payroll, total hours worked, etc.

To be clear, most of the logic has been worked on by busybusy; we just connected to it.

Overall the project worked, but there were quite a few kinks due to Slack’s API being total crap.

But we had fun and were able to continuously program for 21 hours, so I’m satisfied.
