React is going well, though right now I'm full time applying to jobs. Cover letters and applications just non-stop. I need to get an income immediately. As soon as I've got a few dozen or so applications under my belt I plan to hopefully beginning contributing to the "code for Philly" website's front end.
So yeah that's life right now. Just need to get paid

I doubt you'll have to wait long with the amount of effort I know you put into it. Codepen recently sent out an email about Hired. Might be worth looking into
It's got a few philly companies listed ( @SimplyPhy - someday I'll remember to tag correctly... yeah right)

Yeah, I got that email too; I'll be digging through that list soon 🤓. Spoke to a few people today, and just started reaching out yesterday, so a good start hopefully.
Thanks for the writ of confidence @Lilyheart 💪🏼

I know you can’t really wait until BarCamp, but my teacher cannot extoll the virtues of job hunting there enough. So, even if you find something temporary until then, there is always that.

I can't type without my glasses but I can't read my tablet with them. xD
Well @SimplyPhy we might be getting a new space with better internet soon. yay for that! It's 3 miles down the road from the library, not jinxing it with too many details yet tho. David and I are checking out the space next week.

Monday is more possible than Wednesday and really depends on my contracting hours with the other library but blue bell ambler and spring house is waaay closer to where I live.
