Learning to Code

September 25, 2020

This is my first post on my new blog, oh wow how exciting!

I hope to start this blog off by sharing some of the programming resources I use on the job and during my personal time. These are not the *best resources by any means, and this isn’t meant to be a course. This article should serve more as an introduction and not curriculum. If you are looking for a course or curriculum to get your feet wet I highly recommend starting with Codecademy.com

I’d like to speak on my background in computer science; I started programming in C# at UNCG and it was a great learning experience. Then I shifted into mostly Java 8 and Javascript at my first programming job as senior. Now post-grad I work as a contractor for a telecommunications provider and my current team has a focus on python and the web.
