"I don't expect life to be smooth sailing."
Remind us of your background? Structural engineer, recent grad (Philip's Origin Story here)
Take us through your junior phase. What did you learn? Challenging, learned the NERDS stack.
What did you find particularly challenging? The final test was extremely hard - understanding the questions was tough. Did not pass the test and forgot key details in the senior enrichment project; did not graduate to senior phase and was given the choice of leaving or repeating junior phase.
How did you stay motivated through the difficult parts? I don't expect life to be smooth sailing - expect failures to happen and it's ok.
What surprised you about your experience so far? Failing junior phase and questioning: "Am I really good enough?"
What do you expect about the next phase of the bootcamp? Filling in the gaps, attending CS Saturdays.
What are you building right now? A simple version of AirBnB, inspired by the Trip Planner project (which EVERYONE loves).
