Alright, so I am branching out and trying to grow as a developer. I am working to strengthen my skills and prepare myself for winter. Come November, I will graduate and then it is time to stop messing around and get out there. I bounce back and fourth between determining that I am prepared enough. It is these types of feelings that keep me pushing forward.

I began to look into it. Treehouse sections, Codecademy, random articles. I just was checking it out. At a glance, it seems pretty cool, but when I see these guys breaking it down its like watching Yngwie Malmsteen demonstrate a guitar solo. If you ever looked up his youtube videos, you know what I mean.
Okay, so I am already getting deep here and haven’t even began to talk about Angular. I suppose I will make another entry for just such topics. This one can be about my journey and frustration upon attempting to learn Angular.js.
I get some of the concepts and the execution, but there is much that I don’t understand. In fact, I haven’t had an example yet, that I couldn’t complete, but often times they make it easier than it has to be.
Other than Angular, I have other items on my todo list. If I end up giving up on angular until I am smarter I will probably move on to Ruby on Rails, php, or node.js I am almost positive that those are all backend. I feel that I need to take a deeper look into react.js and backbone.js there may be potential for growth there. I was initially drawn to ember, but my understanding is that it is on the way out. With so much left to learn, it is easy to feel lost. We just keep our heads down and keep going.
