My contract at Seneca Libraries came to an end last month (I knew there was no chance of extension). I had a fantastic experience, and I will miss my colleagues there. Thanks, everyone!
Though I’m sad to leave Seneca, I’m excited about my next career move: I’m participating in an intensive 9-week bootcamp to become a web developer. The program is called Bitmaker Labs, and it’s located in downtown Toronto (so I can easily take the subway down each day). Starting October 21st, I will be learning Ruby on Rails (and other tools) with a group of 39 other motivated students from a variety of educational and career backgrounds.
What does this mean for GrahamLavender.com? Well, I will be posting less about libraries, at least in the short term. When researching Bitmaker Labs, I found it helpful to read the blogs of students from past sessions, so I plan to document my own experience for the benefit of prospective students. The coursework will take up the vast majority of my waking hours, so I may not post as often as I’d like, but I’ll do my best.
Wish me luck!
