When I look back on this first semester, I can really appreciate where I started and where I’m now. Is my coding perfect? No, but it’s a hell of a lot better then it was coming into this course, and it continues to get better. I know that I have to pay attention to detail. That best practice is really the best way to code.

The hope I had when coming into this course was that I’d get a challenge. I definitely have been challenged, but it really is a good challenge. Especially when you know that you are striving at something and you notice bit by bit you’re getting better.

Looking back on this month I’ve had a chance to see where I did start from, polish my code a bit and really finish this semester the way i wanted to. I changed my portfolio to really reflect my work journey, and show kinda how I got to U.I.T. That between my sales and technical background it made U.I.T the perfect fit. I also had a chance to revamp my service app, I’m very proud of it, and I even believe it may turn into something down the line. Also I can show potential employers and say,”hey! I did that!”.

I personally think it’s been a great first semester here at U.I.T. Its been a great experience, I love the course, the curriculum, mentors and my classmates are great. It may be a small class, and we all come from different walks of life, but I think that diversity is what makes this class so unique. I can’t wait for next semester to start, we have a 10 week program up coming where even the mentors will be learning a thing along with us noobs, should be fun!

I hope that everyone has had a great first semester, and that everyone has a great Christmas break. I’ll see you all in the new year!
