So after two intense months of studying and coding (including a move into a new apartment and a couple of Air Force Reserve weekends for myself), we’re starting our final projects here at the Iron Yard. My project is a web app that bands can use to search for practice space and that appeals to the “I want to be a part of it” side of anyone who might have space to rent out. I call the latter “Space Masters” to add a playful element of power to role. It also reminds me of a Saturday morning cartoon I watched as a kid where the bad guy was called the “Master Blaster”.
While it doesn’t look like much now, I expect that in two weeks I’ll have this baby up and running fully ready for demo day. Even with the Harrison Ford plane crash this last weekend, my head is pretty clear and ready to move ahead with all we’ve learned. Its time for our class to put our big kid diapers on and take a series of unassisted steps across this crazy rug called web development.
