    The Dangers of the Jungle

    A lot of things can hurt you in the jungle. That's why monkeys watch — and pick the bugs off— each other's backs! Monkey troops are organized in a way that makes them as strong as they can be. As development teams we should create processes and workflows that do the same thing.

    As my time at Cheeky Monkey Media comes to an end, I thought I would share a list of the life lessons I learned while working with these amazing Monkeys (some of them probably aren’t fit for a corporate blog post). Giving me my first “big girl” job out of college is something I will forever be grateful for. I also want to give a big thank you to all the people behind the company for the laughs, lessons, and nerf wars - you guys are some pretty cool cats.

    In preparation for MozCon, I (Monkey Marketer, Lizzy) did some digging into the Keynotes - don’t worry, I found no criminal reports or sexually explicit photos.

    I think it would be a good idea to paint a brief picture of what the past 6-8 months have looked like for me, in order to provide a little bit more context for my expectations and experience of being an intern at Cheeky Monkey Media.

    The Beginning

    I began my internship at Cheeky Monkey at the end of a five-month coding Bootcamp, called Epicodus, based in Portland, OR.  Before delving into the world of web development, the bulk of my experience was in customer service and outdoor conservation work.
