JavScript, PHP, Drupal at Epicodus

While there I specialized in learning JavaScript frameworks like Ember and Angular, as well as PHP and Drupal. I also learned the ins and outs of test-driven development, APIs, pair-programming, GitHub, and writing clean, modular code. I really enjoyed the creative problem solving aspect of coding and working with others to find the best solutions possible.
