The CodeNewbie Writers of the Month Awards is a monthly "awards ceremony" here on CodeNewbie Community where we showcase three standout writers from the month before. These three folks authored posts that our judges deemed particularly helpful to the community. We announce the award-winners during the first week of each month. Thanks to all of you for your fantastic contributions to this space! ❤️
In no particular order, here are the winners of the CodeNewbie Writers of the Month Awards for March 2021...
Lanre Fagbeyiro (@lanrewaju ) — "Getting Out of Tutorial Hell
In this post, Lanre articulates something that many of us here have probably experienced — that pesky cycle of completing a coding tutorial, feeling deeply satisfied, getting stuck when it comes to coding on our own, and thus turning to another tutorial.
Next time you find yourself in "Tutorial Hell", we definitely recommend you take a look at Lanre's guide to getting out. It's practical, empathetic, and very relatable. Nice work, Lanre!
Alvaro (@alvaro_montoro ) — "Build Your Dream Job"
In this reflection on their career and what keeps it satisfying, Alvaro explains that "a dream job is not something that you aim for, but something that you build, and create, and enjoy every single day."
If you need a jolt of inspiration that's also a little bit philosophical, look no further! Thanks for this article, Alvaro (and the awesome acceptance speech video suggestion)!
Sarah Bartley (@theoriginalbpc ) — "The Newbie's Guide to HTML"
In this article, Sarah makes a very strong case for starting your coding education with HTML and CSS. In the process of reviewing what they learned on Skillcrush in a 12-part series (starting with this post), Sarah provides an approachable and clear lesson plan for anyone getting started in development.
P.S. This post also made it into our #WebDev101 library! Check out the tag page for more articles selected by our moderators that are perfect day-one resources for folks starting to learn web development
Congrats to our CodeNewbie Writers of the Month! Keep up the great work and you might just be on next month's list of top authors!
