Welcome to the "CodeNewbie Community Spotlight" — a series where we interview an individual from our community and highlight all that they've accomplished. We can't wait to celebrate our CodeNewbie community in a new and different way each month!
Name: Tyler VanBlargan
I enjoy my current role where I’m building internal company web apps and doing application support with a dash of report building mixed in. Longterm, I think I would like to work as some variety of frontend developer advocate role where I can spend more time focusing on teaching others and experimenting with use cases for software.
Sharing things as they are worked on instead of only sharing finished products.
Doing so not only helps with staying motivated and excited about what I’m working on, but also provides learning opportunities for me and others! It can be intimidating to show people something that isn’t finished, but it can be very helpful to get feedback as early in the process as possible. If you have to change something major about a project, it’s way easier to make those changes when there’s only 1 layer of complexity than if there are 5.
I got married on Leap Day!
