Curiously learning to code

At the start of the year, I started coding for fun.

I was running through W3 Schools, CodeAcademy’s, attending a few coding like CodeBar and trying to avoid allll bootcamps. I found Treehouse and YouTube to be the most helpful, but only after I had gone through the motions and played with the frontend code.

I’m one of them guys that likes to get a deep understanding things so I found myself reading about the history of the Internet and the work companies like Netscape, Mozilla and the first use cases of the web.

I met a small group of mandem and off the back of that we created a whatsapp group where we did monthly meet ups for accountability and shared our progress so that we could help each other in areas where we struggled.

If I’m honest, I went on a personal journey because I remember my good friend Tayo telling me that Wordpress does most things - I know he was wondering why I would waste my time learning these things and he’s got amazing experience as a Freelancer, working with Agencies and has a knack for design.

Looking back, I feel like it has made me appreciate the different components better,  despite the fact that there are so many verticals that are solves by different services.
