Week 1 is in the books, and most of us can hardly believe it. By “us” I mean my MKS30 (MakerSquare cohort #30) brethren. On the one hand it feels like we’ve been doing this for much longer than a week, and on the other hand it feels kind of like week 1 was all a dream.
I’m currently enrolled in the 30th cohort of MakerSquare, in Austin, Texas. MakerSquare is a three-month full-time career accelerator for software engineering, with locations in LA, San Francisco, and Austin. I’ll be using this space to catalogue my progress through the weeks of the program. I figure it’s best to start with some context — so I’ll begin with a brief post on my background that led me to this unique education experience.
