If memory serves, I’ve been learning how to code, the correct way, since the beginning of February – this year. That means that I’ve been at it for almost four full months. And when I say, “at it,” I mean at it. Starting about two months ago, I began slowing down the pace of my […]
Earlier this year, back when I first came up with the fantastic idea to start learning how to code – the right way – I stumbled upon a very inspirational website called “Learn to Code With Me.” I believe I was searching for reviews that covered sources of online learning and just as luck would […]
If you’ve been reading any of my posts, you may have taken notice that I refer to courses I’ve taken or am currently taking. At this point in my training, that number of courses is growing. I’ve been thinking lately – what is this website going to look like in a year? How many posts […]
