semester starting up

Semester Classes Started Again… It’s Getting Busy Around Here

Classes have started once again at TFL, and it is getting busy around here.

Since the beginning of August, we have had three new students, one student graduate the program, and we just completed our annual Moab River trip.

This semester is going to be challenging but we are up for it!

In addition to our students who are taking classes at TFL, we also have three students who will be taking classes at DSU this semester.

Another student is still very involved in his apprenticeship gun smithing, and two additional students just begun or will be starting their apprenticeships this next week at GlitchBusters and BusyBusy.

As always, we are very proud of all of our students and the support we receive from parents, guardians, our mentors, and Educational Consultants.

TechieForLife wouldn’t be the same without each of you!

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.

TFL Student’s Experience Taking A Social Dance Class At DSU

This semester, I had the experience to attend a social dance class at Dixie State University with Eric.

It was a lot of fun.

I learned how to waltz, I learned the salsa and I learned to tango.

I have wanted to learn to dance for a very long time but I didn’t believe I was good enough to actually learn anything.

Lo and behold, I am better than I thought I would be.

I got the steps rather quickly and had tons of fun. I even got to perform.

Twice.

One of the performances was actually a competition and counted as the final in the class.

The second performance was just a showcase for the different dance classes that DSU offered.

I had so much fun that I signed up for the next semester of the class where I will be learning three new dances.

Yay me!

I finally get to live my dream.
