Chris EK, on life as a continually learning software engineer.

Sinatra What?

Maybe it’s just because it was a Monday. Or maybe it’s because our recent material pushed me even farther outside of my comfort zone than I already was. Maybe I was unrealistically comparing myself to brilliant classmates who happen to have more experience with web apps. Or maybe it’s any number of the myths referenced in this alum’s blog post.

For whatever reason, yesterday was a tough one for me. But those thoughts are myths. The reality is that I’ve learned a ton in just one month, and that moments like these are normal for a beginner who’s learning this quickly. So here’s to commemorating the rough moments so I can look back on them and realize what I’ve accomplished.
