I was rejected by Etsy one year into my career. At the end of the a long day of interviews, they asked me to code a CS problem (Conway's Game of Life) in a language that I definitely didn't know (PHP). #shareyourrejections
After the interview, I went home and read everything I could about Conway's Game of Life. I didn't understand a lot of it. So then I started reading about other computer science problems, hoping one of them would make more sense to me.
But even some of that was still confusing. So I started trying to comprehend the fundamentals. How did these algorithms work, and how could I better understand them? I wasn't sure, but I knew that I had to try to find out.

I love that on #InternationalWomensDay we take the time to celebrate women, it's brilliant. What would be even more brilliant is if we did this every day. For the next 365 days, I am going to add a Tweet a day in celebration of women from around the world 🌍 Let's get started 👇
Day 1: @drpriaero is an Aerospace Engineer / Senior Research Associate at @UniofOxford's Department of Engineering Science, researching fluid dynamics & thermodynamics of jet engines 🚀 #IWD2018 #IWDEveryDay
Day 2: @monicasarbu created @packetbeat, an open source data shipper, before joining forces with @elastic to lead the Beats team. She's a mum while at it too 💪 #IWD2018 #IWDEveryDay

Hi, it's too early and my mentions are full of dudes being Very Annoyed that I said (again) that computer science degrees aren't essential.
So, a few things about that.
1. That's a pull quote from a talk I did yesterday that is mostly not about that.

In today's edition of "oh my god everything is so freaking interconnected", I learned a W I L D thing about JavaScript's parseInt function:
You're probably already be familiar with how parseInt() works; it converts a string into an integer, based on the radix/base you pass to it.
For example:

parseInt("150.00", 10)
=> 150

Pretty straightforward, right?
