A lot has happened this week!I did a meetup which was awesome, we started PHP at the dojo, and I did a Hack-a-Thon that was amazing and will get its own post.

We started PHP this week, but sadly I ended up getting sick and the first day of PHP I just could not focus and retain anything. Then I missed day 2 of PHP so now I am playing catchup with the assignments.

Now the meetup! It was amazing!! The meetup, titled Building Your Street Cred, was done through the Femginners group on meetup.com. Karen Catlin gave the presentation after WealthFront gave their little background on their devs and company. It was pretty awesome, she went through how important it is to get your name out there through blogs, LinkedIn, interactive resumes among other things.  She was great and it was awesome to get to talk to her before and after her presentation. One thing we talked about was after the bootcamp I should find a charity to create a site for, and this would help with my street cred at the same time as helping a cause that I really feel needs attention.
