Hey there people!
For those of you who don’t know me, I’m Evan Lewis.
Ya, I’m the goofball above who created MindPuck. I am a recent grad of UWO’s Ivey School of Business and a new student at Code Academy. Code Academy is a web development and design school in downtown Chicago, Illinois.
I finished university last Friday and drove to Chicago on Sunday – I start my first web development class at 8am tomorrow morning at Code Academy.
Excited? Yes. Nervous? Definitely.
In short, I am in a brand new city where I know almost nobody, being thrust into an environment where I’m learning a multitude of programming languages and operating at 110% at all times.
It is going to be a wild ride to say the least. Over the next 3 months, I will be taking a web development course (8am-1pm, Tuesday & Thursday) in which I learn to develop websites and web applications on Ruby on Rails, one of the most dynamic programming platforms used these days. I have absolutely no experience with Ruby and apparently this class is going to be intense. My brain is likely to explode with information on a number of occasions, but at least I’ll be making use of it.
I’m also taking a HTML/CSS design class one night a week. This means good things for MindPuck. CSS & HTML are two programming languages that make MindPuck look the way it currently does. Once I learn these languages better, I will be able to make MindPuck a whole lot more funky looking. In a good way, I hope.
Anyways, I need to hit the hay so I can stumble out of bed for 8am class. But please stay tuned for news on my adventures in Chicago and at Code Academy. I will be blogging on the regular with updates on everything from programming to partying to playoff hockey! I’ll do my best to keep you entertained.
Speaking of entertainment, watch this:
Don’t be jealous that I get to watch Kaner dangle in the NHL playoffs live at the United Center next week. Muahahaha.
As always, thanks for supporting the site. Much love to all.
