I mentioned in my post last week that I’d be sharing technical blog posts, and here’s the first one! If you’re new to the blog, I just graduated with a degree in Computer Science and worked on a ton of cool projects during my time at UC San Diego. By far the most influential class was CSE 112 taught by Professor Thomas Powell. CSE 112, or Advanced Software Engineering, was a course where we created a fully operational build pipeline, inherited an old codebase, and added a few new features.
It sure has been a while since I’ve written anything here, but I don’t have to tell you that. If you’ve been following my blog, you know that this has become the norm and I write when there’s something notable to write about. In my last post, I mentioned that graduation was close (June 2017). Looking at today’s date I can see that it’s July 5, 2017. That’s right! I graduated!
Yeah… Remember when I posted in February saying sorry for not posting for three months? Well guess what, it’s been eight months since that post! Do I get a medal or trophy now? No.
I already know what you’re thinking- he’s been busy with school and work. Why even bother read this anymore then? Good question! I have no valid argument to get you to read this. Honestly, I’ve only kept this blog active because it’s therapeutic to write. I never had any intentions of “hitting the Internet jackpot” by becoming famous. I don’t monetize this website and let’s be honest: I’m not interesting. I’m here to tell my story and look back years (or even months) from now and cringe at what is out on the Internet forever. Here’s my promise for this post: make it interesting. I’m not going to do the same song and dance where I say I’m in school, or working hard, and call that a post.
It’s been three months since I’ve posted anything here. It’s sad when I count a post as a video I shared. I guess it’s time I write a little post about what’s been going on in my life, I’ll give you a hint, it’s not much…
If you didn’t know, I’m a YouTube power user, and I rarely come across videos that make me want to share them instantly on here. This 3 minute and 48 second video is worth your time, really.
You may be wondering, did I fall off the face of the Earth? Or perhaps you haven’t even noticed I haven’t posted because I hardly ever post. I have a good reason!
