"Burnout is real. Please DO take care of yourselves!"
Remind us of your background? Worked in HR/Fintech! (Origin Story Ep 11)
Take us through your junior phase. What did you learn? Dove into frontend/backend, including React/Redux, not just Wordpress sites. Including Passport.js and web security
What did you find particularly challenging? Staying healthy and taking care of yourself. Never took a break from coding and became physically, mentally exhausted. Those hours were not necessarily productive!
What was the most enjoyable part? Trip Planner, Testing (mocha and chai)
How Burnout feels: "Wow... I can't think anymore." Reaching out to Mel Martins.
Working on the Grace Shopper project team and feeling like she is not contributing.
What do you expect about the senior phase of the bootcamp? Hope for a good team. Some teams have personality conflicts and poor communication. Open to working on anything as long as it is a strong team.
Gripes about Sequelize (and testing thereof...)
What are you building right now? Doing her tech talk on Tokenization (a Cybersecurity topic). Chrome Extension for Stackathon!
Technical Public Speaking (and the challenges of removing vocal tics...)
