Being on the verge of getting employed by a new tech company seemed like the right time to resume writing here.
I'm still working out details with my future employer, and it will probably be official today, if all goes to plan. I have already been assigned a task, in order to test my capabilities as a developer, which I have been doing for the past week.

In order to help me get acquainted with the codebase and getting my bearings, the company's lead developer has been of invaluable help for these past few days. It's always a great experience when you're able to learn from someone you respect and who proves to be very knowledgeable about the problems at hand.
What I'm NOT knowledgeable about, and which has honestly been a bit discomforting, is being a Git fool. Reading The Git Reference is something I'm about to do.
