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.
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.
Last week we started learning about databases and how to get started using the most popular open source database, MySQL.
Each student is also well into their personal development tracks for optimal learning and engagement.
I’ve also had the chance to continue to meet with each student one on one and go over how they are doing,
setting goals with them and tailoring their learning track to something they find engaging
while still developing marketable tech skills.

We went to see Rx Trax
which is a company that tracks medication shipments.
One of our teachers, Ryan, works here,
so we got to see the platform they use as well as the coding behind it.
The company plays an important role in the medical field
and the tour itself gave us a glimpse of that.
It was cool seeing what Ryan does as a programmer,
the platform and code looks very interesting.

Tech Class Update…
Everyone has been rapidly improving,
and I am impressed by how quickly they are learning new things.
The students involved with Art Around the Corner should be very proud of themselves,
as they have received a great deal of praise for their hard work and their attention to detail.
Many of the students have completed the requirements for their web certification,
and the rest of them will be done by next week! — Joe TFL Tech Coach
