These past few weeks have been filled with excitement (and lots of beginner frustrations) about something I recently discovered that I truly like. I had been craving to find and meet creative people outside my social circle and workplace. You know, to catch some fresh air and see what's happening in the design + technology scene.
After months of checking out General Assembly's website, I finally ventured to participate in a free class called Web Development: Let's Break it Down in late May. I knew I had a deep interest in coding, which began when I was a kid, yet I didn't pay much attention.
What I've grasped from teaching myself to code and attending a few classes is that there's a community of people willing to help you get through. I'm blessed to receive great advice from web developers and friends. This just makes me want to keep going.
I'll keep you posted on my progress and other things that make me LOVE living in DC!
