Coding Bootcamp - Week 10 of 14

INFORMATION OVERLOAD!!! They say the brain is like a sponge, soaking up information. Sponges come from coral. My brain feels like a piece of coral reef that was struck by a tanker.

The amount of material we are covering is vast and the pace is fast. The time and work I've put into this are very substantial: 10-12 hours a day, 7 days a week.

The graded assessments difficult and have pushed me to my limits and beyond. Developing the intangibles, including pseudo-coding, pair-programming, documentation skimming, networking, as well as dealing with the noise and overall stress, have pushed me to my limits and beyond.

And for all of this, I am extremely grateful. I wouldn't change have it any other way. The skills, muscle-memory, knowledge and confidence I have gained are something I now possess at a visceral level. I've been molded by practice, lessons, patience, colleagues, pain, lack of sleep and my instructors, into a full-stack software developer. And of that, I am extremely proud.

Never give up!

Thank you to those who've helped me get this far. Code Platoon has changed my life.
