Two weeks into my journey at the Iron Yard Nashville and I am amazed at how much I have already learned. The best part is I can actually apply that knowledge and build something! As of right now I have the tools to build a working website from scratch with HTML, CSS, and SASS. That is beyond awesome and that is the main reason I am doing this: to build cool projects. To quote Richard Hendricks from Silicon Valley: “Isn’t that the whole reason why you got into this in the first place, to build cool sh*t?” Now I am ready to build on what I already know and learn JavaScript. From dipping my toe in the shallow end of the JS learning pool I know that it is powerful and can do some really cool stuff. Its going to be a fun and frustrating trip! That isn’t to say the start of this journey hasn’t come without its bumps. I have struggled with understanding responsive design and positioning, feeling confident with a project then realizing I didn’t quite get it right the first time, etc. This list could keep going, but what I have learned from those struggles is that I can over come those frustrations and learning something new. This entire course at the Iron Yard will be a process of learning, breaking and learning some more. I just need to take it a day at a time, soak in as much as I can, and stay positive. A programer I will be!
