We have a house! Our application to rent a lovely house in Roslyn, Dunedin was approved – we move in in about 10 days!
Fingers crossed, all our belongings arrive around then, too… We might have to borrow some mattresses from a friend in the meantime. Continue reading House on a hill
Wow, I kind of can’t believe it… After just over two years here in Montpellier, we’re moving again! You won’t believe where we are headed – further south than I’ve ever been in my life… Continue reading Southbound!
The first really exciting piece of news lately is that I’ve recently begun working at Teads, a video advertising specialist. The company is a huge local success story of innovation and the regional tech industry.
My role, which I began two weeks ago, is as a support engineer. I’ll be helping our internal and external clients manage the technology implementations and provide solutions to any problems they might have.
After two weeks, I’m still really excited to get up and go to work every day: the team has been very patient and understanding as I slowly get to grips with the technology and integrations. The platform itself is pretty interesting and the problems I’ve been seeing have some interesting solutions.
I’m looking forward to learning more and being a part of a really special team.

So this week marks the final chapter in my Ironhack Bootcamp. It’s been a ride, that’s for sure! Last week we started our Final Projects – a web development project of our own choosing and structure. On Friday we present our projects and then on Saturday I head back to Real Life in Montpellier.
No project is the same as another, so it’s a really diverse mix of technologies and approaches. My project is a riff on the AirBnB model but for specialty bicycles and is built on Ruby on Rails with the front-end based on the Foundation framework. My approach was focussed on getting the main back-end functionality completed before beginning the front and that worked pretty well in my case. Continue reading The home stretch
