Really can’t wait for Utimate Programmer.
Once it’s released it’s going directly into my stack, and I may build a custom around it as well. Emperor/Stark/Ultimate Programmer seems like a potent combination tailor-made for my upcoming career.
My CV’s gone out to a few companies for internships so far. I’m excited, nervous and I truly hope that I get the chance that I’m waiting for. Doesn’t seem like much money at first, but it would be double what I’ve ever made annually, it would make me the highest-earning person in my family and I could finally help my mother with the rising living costs that have been taking an emotional toll on her.
I am so intimidated by the certification exam, I don’t know if I’ll ever feel prepared enough to take the CCNA exam. I feel like I just need to study as hard as I can and no matter what happens, I take the exam by the end of February. If I fail, I join the 95% of people that fail the CCNA on their first attempt, no biggie. If I pass, then I am set.
If I fail, I have the experience of sitting and seeing the exam and how the process works. The process becomes familiar to me and makes it so much easier the second time around, knowing that which was initially unknown.
I don’t want to waste 300 USD but at the same time, the experience would definitely not be a waste of money. I should set aside 800$ and if I do pass the exam first try, I’ll get myself a nice little gift. I know exactly what I have in mind.
