Starting at Recurse Center

Breaking character for a life update: I’m doing a batch at the Recurse Center The Recurse Center The Recurse Center is a self-directed, community-driven educational retreat for programmers in New York City. !

I’ve been doing web development for a long time JAKE.MUSEUM A collection of visual and hypertext media. . I started making websites for myself in middle school. In college, I did a couple of web development internships, as of summer 2023 I’ve been a professional web developer for just over 11 years.

Most of it has been related to frontend. As time went on, I started working in other related areas, such as backend and infrastructure. I’ve been fortunate enough to work at companies that encouraged me to develop T-shaped skills — a deep specialization in one area and broad knowledge in others.

Hopefully, RC gives me a chance to pursue some other interests outside of that — at least, in a way that’s a little more directed than just fumbling around for tutorials on Google. Not sure how often I plan to write about it while I’m there, but I do hope to make some of my work public, and you can look forward to at least a recap post when I’m done.

By the way, posts here about RC will have this link at the bottom encouraging you to join. If any of this sounds fun or interesting to you, check it out!
