Expanding my Horizons from Print to Web

This was my first week at HackerYou’s two-month Front-End Web Development bootcamp and I already feel like a web developer! Everyone has been super friendly and willing to share their knowledge – instructors and peers alike.

Before starting this course I was a print graphic designer with some web design experience and a curiosity to learn front-end web development. It wasn’t until I attended a Ladies Learning Code HTML + CSS workshop and two design friends raved about the course, that I knew to wanted to expand my skills and learn to code.

Right now, I am in the middle of building my first 1 page website and have already experienced moments of frustration and victory. All I can say is there is great satisfaction in that moment you are able to pinpoint the issue in your code and resolve it. Success!

Although it has just begun, I feel as though I have learned so much over the past week. I’m very excited to continue building and honing my skills. This is just the tip of iceberg and I look forward to what will come next!
