Teaching 101: How I teach (code)

Over the past few months, I’ve started getting involved in teaching a web development course to beginners. Had I stayed in Melbourne, I would have taken the web development teaching assistant role I was offered by one of the coding schools. In the end, the same company gave me a …

The first week in Melbourne

The first three weeks in Australia have come and gone very quickly and if I could sum it up in two words it would be the following: exceeding expectations. There are lots of details I can share, but I’ll start by summarizing my first week. As excited as I was …
