So funny story today... we had our Global Town Hall at GM with the CEO Mary Barra present and everything.
At the Q&A portion people asked some really really dumb questions. But the crown jewel was some guy getting up in front of GM and all of our employees/contractors/etc and getting the microphone to ask a question and instead tells her that he thinks her leather jacket is ugly and that wearing that in Texas is a lulzy dumb idea.
That dude is going to have a bad time. i was pretty shocked he said that lol. I mean she took it well in the public setting there but his managers are going to take him aside immediately. So cringey and dumb.
Okay, I need guidance.
I've been graduated from that coding bootcamp for 9 months.
Still haven't been able to land a full time job doing this.
I have 4 freelancer site revitalization gigs currently, but they are just attempts to build some cred.
Since I last posted I have taught myself a tiny bit of vue.js, node.js, mariadb, mongodb, Drupal 8, jumped from windows to linux, learned css grid front to back, taught myself how to use GIMP properly.
I've more or less forgotten C# already, tho I am sure I could pick it back up if needed.
I haven't touched python at all.
Any suggestions on what to learn next that will make me more appealing to a potential employer given my, more or less, super noobie status?
It's a little stressful paying all that money, going through all of that course, then having to go back to 12hours a day, 6 days a week of heavy labor just to keep the roof over my head.
And yes, I'm aware I could have done it for free online.
Yikes. Pick something and stick to it. If front end learn js in and out and pick either react or vue. If backend learn one backend language and one db query language (probably sql...). Make things, put them on github, make a portfolio site. You're all over the place. Especially fuck drupal lol..
Finish up those freelance gigs and then focus on looking for jobs that involve those front end frameworks/languages. I mean assuming that is what you want to do. Check with your local government institutions (if you live in a decent sized city or close to the capital) as they usually have a hard time retaining developers and will often hire as long as you show potential to learn.
Need a customer table
A backup alert table
A monitor alert table
Thats all I really need right now
Customer Table needs to have name and ID
Backup Alert Needs to have a tie to customer table, needs to have a datetime field, and a status (which will be one of 3; Fail, Success, In Progress)
Monitor Alert needs to have tie to customer table, Alert Type, Alert Description, Machine Name, Datetime, and a T/F for Resolved
I will be adding Anti-Virus alerts later when our email-parser guy figures out how to tie our anti-virus alerts to a client (too generic of emails currently)
Emails will be parsed, enter data into these fields and shit (being done by a guy on my team who has experience with that SPECIFIC item). Web app needs to query database and grab, color code, and re-arrange the results of the queries.
Am I doing it right?
This is for the basic internal dashboard I am building right now. I eventually want to expand it but this is what needs to be done ASAP according to my VP.
THANKS LENDARIOS. You should see where its come now!
Conditional showing, conditional ordering, self-creation of clients, self clearing alerts, querying the monitored devices for serial numbers and querying dell for warranty info. Tie into our ticketing system API to auto-create tickets for the need for warranty renewals and alerts not autocleared within an hour, one button report building, and conditional audio cues for active alerts
MAN you got me going
Also I am glad it could help people.
I'm getting real tired of some of the bullshit politics that I've become aware of since my meteoric rise into the ranks of management at this company.
I also find I dont like management. I am too hands on, to be able to be hands off.
