I reached out to someone in tech who I admire. Someone who transitioned to tech and in my eyes is kicking ass. She was kind enough to have a 15 minute conversation with me on Sunday, and she said something that stood out to me. She said that I should build things.
Things are starting to spice up as I continue on Learn.co. I just finished their Blackjack portion, where I completed a simple Blackjack game. Nothing crazy. Lots of fun doing it, because I got stuck numerous times.
I want to make two sites a week. I actually googled "making a website a day" and a woman named Jennifer Dewalt popped up. She built 180 sites in 180 days. That's the way she taught herself how to code, by doing. She saved up, before teaching herself how to code full-time - awesome! - but I don't have that luxury as yet. I want to build 2 sites a week until...(still determining the end date). The sites will follow a theme, that I'll post about later. With my current schedule I'm not sure when I'll begin this. I'm pretty scared about how this will go, but I see that as a good thing.
