Software Engineering Daily has been added to my daily podcast listening stream. The host, Jeff Meyerson does an outstanding job of interviewing guests and keeping the conversation interesting. I highly recommend that you give the show a listen.
This week’s Business Web Practices lecture features two individuals with strong ties to Clark College; CTEC and CGT adjunct instructor Fellene Gaylord and Web Development program graduate Christine Watson. Both will share tales of their career journeys with a stress on how successful careers in the world of the web require one to be fluid, open to change, and be willing to regularly develop and expand their skill sets.
Hope to see you on Weds. 11/2/16 at 4:30 in Foster Auditorium at Clark College in Vancouver, Washington.

Here’s the video of Peter Ramsing‘s talk entitled “The Ongoing Adventures of a Front End Developer” which he delivered at Clark College on Wednesday afternoon. Let me just say that web development technologies have been rapidly evolving over the past several years. A day doesn’t go by when a new language, library, tool, technique isn’t trying to grab your attention. Peter talks about this and how important it is to maintain your focus. On behalf of Clark College thank you, Peter.
Here are some links

I just received this feedback from Troy Uyan’s presentation at Clark College earlier this week:
I just finished Troy’s presentation. He is an extraordinary individual. If I didn’t know any better, I would think he had at least 5 to 10 years experience. He is extremely accomplished in such a short time. His story about realizing that if a textbook had 13 chapters and only 8 were covered he would finish the other five chapters was very telling about his desire to excel.
Troy was a former student of mine who completed the Web Development program at Clark College, located in Vancouver, Washington.

This week’s speaker is a Clark College Alum success story. A few years ago, Troy Uyan was a Clark Running Start student exploring career options. He is currently employed as a web developer for the government of Clark County. He talks about how Clark’s CTEC Web Development program helped prepare him for his job and share impressions of his current world of work.
Here’s a video of Troy’s talk given at Clark College on Wednesday, September 28, 2016:
