I love the idea of creating things, I am a writer by nature, but it doesn't pay the bills. Learning to code allows me to create while learning a skill that will one day pay bills. My goal is to ultimately not have to leave home to work, that is how I learned about coding. Since then I have started FreeCodeCamp, codecademy, and SoloLearn classes they all teach coding in different ways that help guide me to a better understanding. I am looking to get my certification as a full stack web developer using these free resources. I am cheered on by my two beautiful daughters and loving husband, so two kids but sometimes it feels like three. :)
This picture is of the girls instead of myself, because I think as moms we all have one thing in common, wanting to make life better for our kids. We are all connected in the coding world by these little hearts walking outside of us.
