TMJ: I had my 3rd interview today, which means that I suffered from pre-interviewnitus all day (*State of complete uselessness. Diagnosed when one is incapable of doing anything but staring at their interview calendar invite.)
The interview was a cold wake up call to my non-existent technical knowledge. Ugh. I keep excusing myself, saying that in my line of work I don’t need to speak computer language, that I just need to speak people’s language. Not true. This interview was proof that I need to be better. I need to know more.
Camilo to the rescue- he spent the entire way home teaching me, repeating himself, quizzing me. Poor guy.

- Library- set of code that provides a group of functions with a clear interfaces
- API is a description of that interface and the interface itself
