My Journey Through The Iron Yards Coding Bootcamp. V1.1, V1.2, V1.3


Coding is complex. Learning how to code is like playing minefield with knowledge. You ask one question and it could lead down a rabbit hole(AKA Bombs) that quickly turns into a black hole. Other times you ask a question get a simple answer and you move on. I asked a lot of rabbit hole questions this morning.

My lord I never thought it would be this fun getting lost in this world. This is art to me. The things that HTML, CSS, Unix, and Git can do continue to blow my mind and we are only three days into this. I cant imagine how I am going to feel or what I’m going to be able to do in 12 weeks of this but boy am I excited for the journey.

I love my teachers. They continue to make this whole experience fun while also getting us to dig deep and learn as much as we can. I have been overwhelmed with reading and homework twice already in 3 days but am starting to bring my mind back from work, home, TV, sleep mode that its been on for 2 years now. Its nice to be learning something exciting again. It helps that i answered 70% of the questions in our open lecture this morning. And received a high five from Russel (Head Instructor) every time. Couldn’t be more proud of myself for picking up on these topics and all the information that comes with it.

Now I am entering a career where you are constantly moving forward and learning all the time along with the rest of the industry. I have never been more excited about the future for me.

Back to work! Working through CSS now. It is making my OCD very happy that I can make a webpage look EXACTLY how I want it to look on my own. Project this afternoon is going to revolve around making the below webpage myself. Lets get to it.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
