The good word is in! I got a jobbie! Well, it’s a two month internshippie, but the plan is to turn it into a full-time dev position once the internship is over. I’ll be finishing out the last three weeks of the General Assembly cohort that I’ve been a Developer in Residence for since June and begin my internship after that.
I’ll be working as a dev intern for The History Project, a start-up in Oakland that allows you to preserve memories and tell stories through gathering various media on a digital timeline. The site currently up is the beta version and V2 should be launched at the end of September. I’m excited to get started and contribute to a meaningful project! There’s an intimate team that I’ll be working with and learning from and the environment there seems really great. I feel like I really lucked out here! (Did I mention it’s in Oakland?!)
A side passion of mine has always been crafting of all sorts. I fell in love with cross-stitching the first time a got a little kit with a basic hummingbird pattern. It’s so wonderfully tedious! Off and on for the last few years, I’ve completed projects then forgotten about it. In the last couple months, though, I discovered the world of ironic patterns on Etsy. I bought one and would come home from work and immediately sit down, fire up Netflix, and get right to stitching. I was hooked! After finishing that project, I bought five more patterns and am working through those right now. My friend requested a custom design, so I’m looking into making my own pattern for him.
Well, there you have it. The brief history of my life that has led me to this moment of starting a blog about cross-stitching and coding. Keep coming back for updates on my dev and stitch projects, musings on the strange SF world of tech and start-ups, code and crafting how-to’s, and stories about the terrors of job searching.
