Just since the inevitable complaints will show up from Jenna in some form when she resumes coding this week, I thought I'd include some of the things she said in earlier posts about it!

Here, Jenna claims she had learned enough Javascript from her Hack Reactor program this summer (when the kids were in WA) that she used that to prep and do her interview challenge with DBC:

I covertly watched the video toward the end of my evening coding class, TH picked me up from the Bart station and ran through some logic questions with me (reminding me that what matters is verbally walking through my process, not necessarily solving the puzzle), and I worked through two sections of Ruby before I gave in and decided that I could get by with the Javascript I had learned in my prep course.

<snip>

I really appreciated the way that settled my nerves a bit before we moved into the section where I knew it would shortly become very obvious that I have no idea how to write anything in Ruby. I got through this portion by reflecting back “Well, if we were doing this in Javascript” for just about every question he asked, and he seemed satisfied with my ability to read through a few lines of code and explain what was happening and why it happened. If you were judging my performance on the coding challenge based on my knowledge of Ruby then you would determine that I bombed it spectacularly, but I felt there was still hope because I knew that what’s important to them is the way I think and approach problems, not how much I already know.

Here, even less than a month ago and since starting Dev, Jenna again references already having a background in Javascript, and claims that foundation in Javascript is helping her learn Ruby.

The foundation I have in Python and JavaScript has been enough to help me quickly catch on to writing variables, hashes, and arrays in Ruby.

Of course the very thing she's basically since been complaining endlessly about not knowing in her recent reflections is any knowledge of Javascript others-221

Here, in past posts Jenna talks about how/why she thinks she's suited for coding and expresses she seems to realize/understand that you often get stuck and have to keep working and just get something figured out:

I’ve always liked jigsaw puzzles. Like Ross, kicking back with a puzzle for a few hours sounds very relaxing and enjoyable to me. I’m also a self-starter and a self-driven learner who will passionately dive into a question or project. All of these are good qualities for a computer engineer to have because it’s about coming up against roadblocks and trying to figure out the solution all day every day. I also have developed a hearty resistance to worrying about what other people think of me, which is very handy in this field because it means I worry a lot less about “looking dumb” and will ask questions and raise my hand and dive into google every time I don’t know something or forgot how to do something.

<snip>

Working with code is often about setting a goal, getting stuck, trying fifty different things to test out some theories, wiping away lots of work and trying a different route altogether, searching for other people’s questions on the Internet to see if they had a similar problem, asking your own questions, and being okay with leaving something behind entirely and working on something new. And then repeating the process above all over again.

Here she expresses she knew she needed to appear that she demonstrated the very qualities she is NOT demonstrating in her reflections and work now:

The logic puzzle was hard for me, but I kept focusing on my need to not get frustrated or sound like I was giving up. The important part was showing that I have resilience and will keep digging when I come up against a problem.

And here we see what she'll probably claim as an excuse if she's told she needs to repeat level 0:

Also very important to me was the ability to repeat portions of the program if necessary. This gives me the cushion I need to feel like my family can still have their needs met if something arises, because I’ll have a chance to catch back up and fall behind. I, of course, don’t want to be doing this any longer than necessary and don’t plan to any repeating, but it’s nice to have it as an option on the table.

Here's a snippet from her August Github blog post – accurately titled "Taking ownership of your dev bootcamp experience" which is hilarious to read in light of her impending failplosion:

I signed up for Dev Bootcamp specifically because of the phase-based program structure with an emphasis on developing the EQ of an individual along with their IQ. The phase-based program allows me the space I need to really learn the material go on vacation all the f**king time instead of forcing myself to rush in order to meet all of the deadlines. Of course my goal is to finish the program the week before Christmas (lmao) and move into a new chapter of my life in the first week of 2016, but it is very important to me that I graudate the program after soaking up as much as possible before the technical interviews and the new job training begins. I've been passionate about the growth mindset after reading The One World Schoolhouse and am excited to be a part of a learning environment where the capacity to learn is emphasized as robustly as the curriculum.

Shereef's Fireside Chat clarified some of my assumptions and further reinforced that this program is the right choice for me. One week in and I'm already scrambling a bit to make furthter adjustments in my life to accomodate the workload of Phase 0. (sfun_nopity)I've been a work-at-home-mom for over five years now, and there are a lot of things I'm going to need to adjust about my schedule and mindset in order to manage the demands of my future job. Phase 0 is [...] providing me a glimpse into what my work-life balance is going to be like after DBC graduation. (I'm sure future employers will gladly offer you a 10/90 split. Keep on advertising your brilliant work ethic all over the place, that'll defs land you that six figure job) Attending a program without something like the Phase 0 ramp-up period and the Phase 1/2/3 holistic approach to developing a person instead of just a programmer would have been a recipe for mental/emotional collapse for me (B***h, you're already having a mental break)

I most appreciated the frank talk about a student's employment prospects post-graduation. Becoming employable is as important as the amount of programming skills a student absorbs, and employability and a firm grasp of a wide-variety of programming principles are not always the same thing. (Oh Jenna, how right you are. You're failing spectacularly at both) I was already approaching the program with a growth-mindset, but now I'll be striving to focus less on checking the "completion" box for each assignment, and more on developing the unique skillset I can take from this intense experience and leverage into a choice employment opportunity in January 2016(All the lulz finger)

Love the annotated versions of Jenna's blog posts – it's even funnier when the jokes are highlighted.

My guess for #WhereAreTheChildrenAllof2015-

Some poor cousin (perhaps the one from this summer) got roped into living with Jenna this fall under the guise of Jenna doing this time consuming boot camp and needing almost 24/7 childcare so she could study and be onsite. But with the luxury of having live in childcare Jenna can't help but take advantage and go on "much needed couple time" numerous vacations instead.

She's definitely referred to haters and trolls etc but I haven't seen her specifically mention GOMI.

I know that she has had people (in her J-circle and hugs+honesty group) alert her to specific things that are being said here about her.  I don't think she reads here regularly, but I do think she maybe used to.

Uh oh, I'm not sure this comment on Jenna's last insta is worded appropriately according to Jenna's exacting standards. It must be an anti-feminist attack!

Been lurking lately, but in sum:

-adjustments to her workload?? WHAT WORKLOAD??? lmaoIs this about the dishwasher again??

-when has she ever worried about her family having their needs met? chicken

-why is NOW the time she (pretend) decides to focus on that? chin

-Approaching the program with a growth mindset? No.oregonian_winesmiley

-QUIT DREAMING ABOUT YOUR FUTURE JOB. LEARN THE BASICS NOW. STOP GOOGLING ANSWERS. THIS IS NOT LEARNING. Or continue, by all means.smiley-eatdrink055 popcorn

Getting caught up after a crazy weekend and here are a few thoughts:

 

1.) How many last hurrahs does this c**t need in order to perform the bare minimum required of her?

2.) To the poster on the previous thread who is filled with rage after another negative test and seeing ThatTwat abandon her kids again: hugs and high fives and mozzarella sticks to you, my friend.  It's painful to watch people consciously make the decision to have kids (and don't f**king give me that "I was brainwashed" shit, Jenna – your own MORMON FAMILY told you to pump the brakes), have children and still be so miserable and resentful because they are children who require care and attention.

3.) She looks f**king ROUGH for 30. Or at all.  I think all her day drinking is catching up with her.  

4.) How is Swavek being talked into all of these trips?  Has that guy spent this much time with her in the last year? I think there's something sketchy (shocker) afoot, like she's just been stowing away on business trips and playing it off like he's spoiling her with getaways.  And such feminist: she needs HIM to validate her in order to have confidence in herself?  What a dipshit.

5.) Seriously: either finish your little dialogue on motherhood and how you manage caregivers for your kids or shut up and don't talk about it.  Cool it with the idiotic hashtags.
