I have made several attempts over the past few years to get into coding. I love the idea of web development and data analysis. After some struggles, I began the FCC curriculum as well as Codeacademy Pro, and here we are again.
I look forward to the journey—I think I know what to do this time. My goals are to work on beneficial open-source projects, create simple web-based or mobile games, build web sites for local non-profits and/or businesses, find a position as a front-end developer, and ultimately give back to the community by mentoring talent through outreach.
I look forward to contributing to the forums as we learn together. Thinking about creating a Twitter handle to document the journey, and a Github account in the near future.
No matter where we are, I think we’ll all get to where we need to be with consistency, community, and a sense of fun.
