Hi – My name is Carly. I’m an aspiring web developer living in NYC.
The January 2015 Cohort stars 15 dynamic, intelligent, accomplished individuals from various backgrounds. A handful are working in the tech industry. Others boast backgrounds as diverse as theater and banking.
We tackled the first HTML + CSS projects by pair programming the first day. Pair programming is when one person “drives” (types), while the other person “navigates”(dictates code). As we are all relative beginners, working in pairs is great opportunity to learn from others while gaining confidence in what you already know.
We programmed for almost 5 straight hours. The time flew by and the experience was invigorating.
I am so grateful to work with Code Academy, and excited to take this next step in my education. I’ll try to make posts each week. I’m hoping this blog will be a resource and a source of encouragement for other women who are interested in learning to code. Feel free to leave comments and ask me questions.
