I started coding because I wanted to learn a valuable skill while at home with my two very young children. I wanted the flexibility to work wherever I wanted - from home or an office, for myself or an established company. IT stood out to me as an opportunity to do all or any of those things but still have job security, benefits, and a future of growth. Coding (and IT in general) allows me to fit my job into my family life instead of fitting my family into my job life. This gives me a freedom to make my kids and home my top priority while they are young, while still earning a great paycheck and maintaining a vibrant resume of self and career improvement!
