Work & Projects & Stuff

Last month I talked about that coding bootcamp I was registered to do. As excited as I was, I decided to cancel. It’s not that I’m done with learning to code. Far from it. I got a lot of advice and feedback from senior developers who suggested that teaching myself would be a better way to go. I’m motivated to learn, so I don’t need that from a bootcamp. There’s also a very helpful dev community online, so if I get stuck I can get help. Right now I’m focusing on JavaScript.

I’ve been writing for Puttylike Media for about seven months and it’s been awesome. Last week, I landed a new writing gig that’s starting very soon. More details on that after I actually get started. I don’t want to jinx it.

Now that our youngest is vaccinated, we’re going to start getting him into more unschooling groups and doing some day trips around Southern California. It’s still kinda hot outside, so we have to plan carefully to avoid melting.

Speaking of our youngest, I also created an online computer course for him. I want to teach him how to use the computer beyond Minecraft and Photoshop, to really understand how it works and how to maintain it. It’s only getting started, but you can sneak a peek at hello-computer.club.

Of course, I’m still creating my paper zines and sharing them with the world. If you’d like to get it, you can sign up on my zine page.
