As of August 13, 2022, here is what I'm up to and currently focused on:

Launch School

  • Finishing Launch School's Core Curriculum (detailed progress notes can be found here)


  • A Common Sense Guide to Data Structures and Algorithms, Jay Wengrow
    • I'm reading this for Launch School's peer-led seminar on Data Structures and Algorithms
  • Modern Asynchronous JavaScript, Faraz K. Kelhini
    • I'm reading this to solidify my understanding of asynchronous JavaScript as part of preparation for taking Launch School's JS239 assessment. This book was the basis for Launch School's Winter '21 peer-led seminar.
  • My Name is Red, Orhan Pamuk
    • Having traveled to Istanbul 3 times (for a total of 5 weeks), I've become a bit obsessed with Turkish culture and history. Pamuk is one of the most celebrated modern Turkish authors, and My Name is Red contributed to Pamuk winning the 2006 Nobel Prize in Literature.
