The Story So Far
It is hard to believe we are almost half-way though the Boulder gSchool program, where we have been diving into full web-stack application development. Even more astonishing is that we have touched almost all of the main components of application development, now fully able to create live, functioning, business-value-adding features for the world to use.
What a long strange trip it's been.
We started with Ruby basics, which we have been building on from day 1, learning the ins-and-outs of Ruby's unique mix of object-oriented and functional programming. We then started in with Sinatra, a light-weight application framework letting us create functioning websites connecting to databases and user authentication systems.
It is an exciting time for sure. We have started our own personal projects and are about to start some very large-scale group projects helping us to become familiar with group development dynamics and more modern web development techniques and ideas. The Boulder Startup Week is also starting this week, where we will have the opportunity to meet with the local startup and tech culture where will be very likely working in the near future.
