My husband finally convinced me a few weeks ago that I might just make a great programmer. He pointed out that I’m EXTREMELY detail oriented, I like putting things in their proper place, and I have a lot of patience with tedious, nitty-gritty stuff. Plus, I’m an artist and love making everything look pretty.
I took his advice and started my journey with HTML and CSS. After watching some YouTube tutorials, I signed up for the free lessons on http://www.codecademy.com. It seemed like the perfect place for a total beginner like me to get an introduction to a variety of popular programming languages.
Shockingly, it’s going great so far. I’m finished with the HTML section and am about half way through CSS. I got my 100 lesson badge today and had to share my joy. Not bad for a girly pretty princess like me. I’m taking exhaustive notes and am looking forward to seeing what else I can make. I’ll keep you posted on my progress. I know I have just stumbled upon a universe of information and have a TON to learn and google. But, as of this moment, I’m enjoying my brain and am feeling very encouraged. 🙂
