Today is my last day at Hacker School. It’s hard to believe how fast the Summer went by. I am not going to lie, the last 3 months at Hacker School have been a total blast. I never had an opportunity before where I could write code and focus exclusively on programming for three months without any responsibilities, deadlines or distractions. While I wish I could stay at Hacker School for a little bit longer, I am super excited about my relocation to the beautiful California to be a part of Yahoo! Inc.

I would also like to give shout-outs to Brian Ruslim for helping me out with whenever I was stuck with JavaScript, and for all those long lunch walks to Prosperity Dumplings in Chinatown where you can buy 10 delicious pork dumplings for $2.75, Alice Chen for all your great contributins to Satellizer, Marcus Malka for your awesome code review feedback, and to many others: Jorge Izquierdo, Carlos Sánchez Serrano, Costa Michailidis, Nicholas Sweeting, Dana Sniezko. Additionally, I would like to thank all the facilitators for making Hacker School so awesome.

So, now that Hacker School is over, what’s next? I am going to start packing bags as I am moving to the Bay Area in 2 days. As for my GitHub projects, I am going to continue working on my open-source projects Hackathon Starter and Satellizer at Yahoo. The next big thing that I plan to release later this year will be the free and open-source cross-platform Markdown editor with Jekyll blog integration, using React and atom-shell or node-webkit. It was my first project at Hacker School, but I had to put it on hold in order to create Satellizer in 2-3 weeks.

Coming Soon: The next blog post will be about the architecture behind the Satellizer. We’ll dive deep into the library to see how it works - on the server and the client.
