A New Beginning

Having worked as a software development manager in the south-east of England for more years than I care to remember, I decided to return to my native Edinburgh and to get back into full-time, hands-on development.

To get back into the swing of things, I decided to join the CodeClan Digital Skills Academy. I cannot praise it highly enough; the course is a short four months but the opportunity for learning is exceptional. I graduated in Computer Science from Edinburgh University back in the days of Kernighan, Richie and the C programming language so the move to using (rather than reading about) OO, TDD, Ruby, Rails, Javascript, React and the like made the course a real challenge.

So this blog is going to look at the ideas, challenges and discoveries that I bump into along way from this new beginning. I hope you find it all as interesting as I do.
