...so I decided to start writing this blog to become a better person.
I just finished reading Post Office, by Charles Burkowski last night night on the advice from James Auchter through his blog/mailing list. The purpose is to work on my writing and learn from other people who are interested in the same things that I am.
I have a goal to become an internet/software developer...I'm starting from scratch. Toward that end, I have done most of the tutorials on codeacademy.com and I am currently reading The Book of Ruby. I feel like I'm learning a lot and I can do most simple things, such as, conditionals, methods, classes, etc., but I don't really consider myself a programmer, just yet. Though reading The Book of Ruby, I have decided that there are a number of edits that could be made to that book to make it easier for people who are new to programming. I imagine myself doing that one day, once I actually learn the language. Maybe I'll write my own book one day, who knows.
While I was working on the python tutorials on on code academy, I would post my achievements on twitter. I was probably doing this just to make people think I was cool or something, but I tell myself that I am doing it to prod one of my friendswho follow me on twitter into picking up programming so that I would have a someone to discuss this stuff with. Anyway, what happened was that I got a new follower who directed my to the CodeEval website. This is one of my new favorite things and I am currently working on my first challenge on the site. I needed this, for a little bit of direction in my learning.
Anyway, if you've read this far...that's awesome. Keep reading my blog and comment often; we're into the same stuff. I will be grateful for any advice and be happy to give mine...I'll try really hard not to be weird. Other things that I do are foreign languages, movies, cool tv shows, astronomy, and go to the gym. I like most forms of music.
