Getting those creative juices flowing Have you ever decided to try coding a new project and suddenly realize you’re not sure where to start? You get pumped, grab some coffee, pop open that code editor and … crickets, nothing, nada! This is especially true when you are first learning to code or getting started with a new language. You read some intro to “whatever” blogs, follow along with some tutorials, but when it comes down to trying to code your first real “thing”, it is like a wave of writers block swoops in and steals your mojo.
I remember getting out of boot camp and being terrified. Oh crap! Now I have to get a job doing this. How do I convince someone to hire me? Would I hire me? Do I know enough? I just spent a ton of money and turned my life upside down. What if it doesn’t pay off? I have a four year old to take care of who is relying on me.
Where do I start? Sometimes the beginning of things can be really overwhelming. If you are a woman who is looking to break into programming / coding then … WELCOME! Whoo hoo, glad to have you : ) First things first… it is totally do-able. You can start from right where you are no matter where that is. I did not start out in tech. I know a lot of coders who have transitioned into tech from other backgrounds.
