How did I become a web developer...

If someone would have suggested I think about becoming a web developer 5 years ago I would have thought they were crazy.

I grew up with a brother who was good at all things computers and electronics. To me, it was magic that only certain people had the ability to be good at. However, I was always fascinated with what he was doing and thought the outcomes were really cool.

Just a few years ago I came to realize that working with code and computers was not some magical thing that only certain people could do, but in fact if one was willing to put in the time they could most likely learn it too! This was exciting to me! I finally felt like I had a path for what I wanted to do now that my children were growing older and beginning their own life journeys.

In fact, it was through discussions with my oldest child that I found my way into tech. She was taking computer science classes at school, and I was curious so I began to look into how to learn to code. Initially, I figured I would just find a few resources that might come in handy in case she struggled in her classes.

Learning to code and become a web developer.

Through that research and our discussions I realized that many aspects of coding were a good fit for me as well.

  • I love learning new things and since technology is always evolving the process of learning is a built-in part of the job.
  • I like to be creative and building websites and applications is a creative process.
  • I also really love solving puzzles which makes building and debugging code fun for me (even if it gets somewhat frustrating at times).

Recording my journey to web development...

Through this blog I intend to write about my journey. I will talk about the courses I have taken and some of the things I have learned along the way. I hope you will visit often and follow along with me as I attempt to Find My Inner Coder...
