A School Year Of Code

As you may or may not know, I have been taking a coding class at Waipahu High School. My instructors from Jr. Devleague have taught me a lot, which I am thankful for.

I expected to learn a lot about code and become proficient at it. I believe that I got what I wanted because now I know HTML, CSS, and Javscript. In addition, another goal I had at the beginning was to be able to program a robot using Java Eclipse. I haven’t gotten there yet, but at least I understand what’s going on in the code since Java is similar to Javascript.

I think that it’s cool being a Jr Dev. Learning code at a young age is definitely a feat and will prove to be useful in the future. It makes me feel more mature because there’s many more people that are older than me and do the same things I do.

I used to think that code was this alien language that would be difficult to learn. Well, I still think that the more advanced programming languages seem foreign, but anything’s possible. I know for sure that of all the careers I’ve considered for the future, I’d like to do something that involves programming. I also feel that learning how to code can also give you a new perspective on things and affects the way you think. You begin to appreciate the internet more and all these machines in our everyday lives that involve some sort of code to run.

When I leave this class, I plan to continue to work on web development. I’m interested in cyber security, game development, and web design. I’d like the go into cyber security the most because the job outlook in the future is really high. I also want to do it because I want to help protect people through the internet.

For students coming up into the class next year, I’d like to advise that anything is possible. If you set your mind to doing something with a program, you can most likely do it. It’s also best to stay open minded, because there are several different ways to solve the same problem. Finally, do all your work on time and try to keep up in class. If you’re struggling, it’s always best to get help from a teacher, because they’re available to you for that very reason.
