Yesterday, I started on my first student project that called for divergent versions— I decided that this was a great opportunity to utilize branches in git for the first time. In short time, I was forcefully made aware that it wasn’t as straightforward as expected. …

I’m Darion, and I’ll be starting Hack Reactor’s Software Immersive on June 14th. I’m entering the program with no professional coding experience, and their curriculum leading towards entry to their immersive program has empowered me to write my first bot! It’s a Discord bot that provides a countdown timer, both by command and status, for Amazon’s New World release. Hopefully, I’ll be regularly posting things I’ve found helpful from my own learning experiences, and neat projects like my bot here in the future.

I didn’t intend for this post to have any real substance. I just wanted to have something here to start!
