Phase two advancements ceremony

TechieForLife Student Advancements- Congratulations!

Congratulations Amber and Joseph!!

Both of these students have advanced from phase one to phase two.

Amber was able to advance right before our winter break and Joseph advanced a few weeks after.

Each student was excited to receive the coveted “keys” to the Nest. 

In order to advance from one phase to another,

students need to complete the current phase,

meet with the program director,

keep weekly SMART goals,

and go before the students for a vote.

We can’t wait to see what each of them can do with phase two.

NATSAP Connect app

New App for NATSAP and Educational Consultants

Six of our TFL students are headed to Florida, today!

They’re excited to attend the NATSAP Conference and help with the launch of the new app they built.

Here is the flyer that TFL graphic design student, Amber, created.

Amber does amazing work!

“Amber takes my ideas and brings them to life, only better!” said Debbie, TFL Marketing and Admissions Director.

This has been quite the project for our students.

Now they get to be a part of the launch…

and go to Disney World!

It’s a win, win.

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.
