We finished code school a few weeks ago, and it was a great experience for me.
The knowledge I gained from my experience there was very beneficial to me.
Me and my partner, Richard Timpson, worked on a web based winery application that lists all of the wineries in North America.
I worked on things like searching, filtering, and layout, while he worked on backed routing and controllers to pull the data we had.
All in all, code school was a great success for me,
I learned loads of valuable information and because of completing code school,
I may be able to test out of some web design classes at Dixie this upcoming semester.

I worked on a team to develop a web application that dynamically calculates safety stock based on demand history, lead time history, and desired service level.

We had a great time out at the Red Cliffs hike recently.
There was a lot of runoff, which created some beautiful clear pools of cold water that only
Grady dared swim in.
Amber, Dylan and I hiked in further while the rest hung out at the first pool.
We had to pass a rocky obstacle using some rope to avoid falling into the pool of water below.
It was kinda tricky, and a lot of fun.

Reid comes to us from Texas.
He also enjoys playing video games and working out in his spare time.
All of us here at TFL can tell a difference already in his body physique, he is taking it quite seriously.
Reid’s favorite food is Thai and if he had a super power, he would want to be able to fly.
Reid’s goals while at TFL is to gain all the certifications he can earn and to find a job to help support his lifestyle.
We have already taken note of how serious Reid is taking his coding classes and we look forward to see what he is capable of doing this summer in the intensive coding classes.
As the mentor in charge of our student food and cooking committee I often get the opportunity to observe first hand the talent had by our students.
Each week they are responsible to prepare, shop for, and cook a meal for everyone and they do a wonderful job.
They find amazing recipes (not always the easiest ones either!) and they taste good to boot.
Whether it’s jalapeno poppers, beef enchiladas, or some Korean dish no one can properly pronounce, you know we won’t be going hungry any time soon here at TFL.

Good evening technicians, I’m pleased to announce dinner will ready, piping hot, in 30-40 minutes.
Tonight’s dish is a Mexican Torte.
Fluffy flour tortillas with layers of sumptuous ground turkey, onion, and green peppers, buried under a hearty serving of refried beans and a field of jalapeno buttons.
All this covered by a cozy blanket of tortillas, and crowned with an alabaster helm of pepper jack and queso fresco.
Also: I’m making guacamole!

In a place called Snow Canyon, near St George, there is a really cool hike that takes you to some lava
This is the hike we went on at some point in March.
The tubes are set into the ground(of course) and go pretty deep into the earth.
If you want to explore them, you do need a flashlight and a good sense of where you are because,
according to some people, they go in all sorts of directions.
I don’t really if that is true, but it keeps me from hiking too deep into the caves formed by the tubes.

All the way from North Carolina comes Alec.
Surprisingly, Alec also is a big video gamer (shocker, right?).
Alec reports that his favorite food is definitely a good double cheeseburger.
He would also enjoy having the ability to fly if he could choose one super power.
Alec hopes to gain some independence and marketable skills while he works on coding at TFL.
Alec has a great personality and is enjoyable to converse with when you’re not competing with his video games.
