My life in code

a to z challenge 2016xhtml – code for nerd (not really)

I’m a self proclaimed nerd. I love all things computer related.

Of all the things I thought I would NEVER do in my life,  writing code was near the top of the list.  I didn’t think I was smart enough and figured I would not understand it.  I was very wrong.

I had the opportunity to learn code when a company I worked for at the time needed a website. I learn by doing – so this was an excellent scenario in which to acquire this knowlege – I built the company website as I worked my way through the classes.

When I started my blog, my coding skills again came in handy.  I love making changes to the code and it’s gratifying to have this kind of control over the design of my website.

I enrolled in online code classes through the ed2go program at my community college.   Each course is six weeks long;  you log in and complete 2 lessons a week.  At the end of the course, there is an exam, that when passed, produces a printable certificate of completion.  I did all my classes in the evenings and on weekends.  Since it is online, you can log in, study and learn when it fits into your schedule.

I strongly recommend to anyone that has a website/blog to learn to code.  You won’t regret it.  You will thoroughly enjoy your new found skills.
