Jobbed!

just to let y’all know, I have a job! wow! it can actually happen, to go from zero computer knowledge to some (what’s the axiom, “the more I know the more I know I don’t know,” right?) and then BE EMPLOYED is actually possible. seriously, I started with so little. and I have so much more to learn, good god. I want to explore the command line more, as well as security, web frameworks (hello django!), JSON, databases, vim, a different terminal, another linux install, a home server, learn about big people in tech & watch their tutorials & learn, AND maybe even do some tutorials! I don’t know what the tech community NEEDS, but I think it could be handy to find out what kinds of tools are out there to help “level up” from learning Python in whatever essential way most learn it.

Me, I learned Python in IDLE on Windows 7, a program that will get ANYONE up and running in 20 minutes, regardless of operating system. and now I operate nearly everything from the command line in a Linux Ubuntu 12.04 dual-install that I figured out & did myself. I use sublimetext to edit code (and a little bit of nano if it’s something small) and irc to troubleshoot with local coding buddies, and both virtualenv and miniconda to create environments on my machine to play around with. I plan on updating to ubuntu 14.04 in a few days, and the challenge that that will bring.

so! overall message! keep going!!

    • For Steve Holden! Right now I’m helping him develop tutorials via IPython Notebooks and a zillion other auxiliary tools that I finally get to (am required to 😉 use. It might be temporary, it might not, but it is great great GREAT experience right now.
