A few interesting tech conferences happened recently and tons of videos went online. Will take a while to make my way through a lot of these.

Kind of obsessed with Lisp at the moment. Reading “Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs” now and I’m about to start “Land of Lisp”.

Like many that study Lisp, I think, I’m learning Lisp no so much to know Lisp better but to know programming better, in general. Though Lisp is lovely.

A good day programming today

This week for me, wow, a big week.

I had a technical interview on Monday. My first ever. Smart engineers looking over my shoulder as I try to prove that I know JavaScript by coding some stuff on a whiteboard and on paper. Super stressful and ultimately amazing experience.

Tuesday evening, I’m offered a job as a “Front End Developer” writing JavaScript, full time, for money. Something I’ve worked really hard for and dreamt of for I don’t even know how long.

Wednesday I accept the offer, sign on the dotted line and BAM! I am a professional developer. Also, it happens to be my 35th birthday.

Thursday, today, I put in my two weeks notice and resign from my current job as non-developer, which I’ve had for 7 years — what?! 7 years?! Yes, 7 years.

I’ve been a developer for a while, but now I am a professional developer and I get to write code for money.

First day is Dec. 3. Can’t wait.

Wow.

I love programming.

Ruby is good. Sinatra is good. PHP is bad. WordPress is good. Windows is bad. Unix is good. I want to focus on the good things.

Super stoked that my pull request — my first ever submitted on github — on mocha.js has been committed. Just happy to contribute in general, and even more so to contribute to an awesome library that I use and really like. Really really stoked on this.

Died laughing when Douglas Crockford called this the dog balls:

(function() {

  // some code

})();

Those ending parens are the dog balls just hanging outside. haha.
