Shay! I'm new to the coding space and currently participate in a cohort that's teaching me web development fundamentals (aka, I'm getting my feet wet in the game).
I'm not sure at what point I can qualify myself as an official "coder" but I'm enjoying just being in the environment for the time being. I've heard a lot about the imposter syndrome that comes with this skill, and I can see that what I've heard is true. I'm definitely in my head a lot about possibly failing on this new journey but that's a part of the process, so I'm trying to get more comfortable with failing!
That fear has been holding me back from playing around with codes and creating new things, but I have a goal to get up and code SOMETHING each day, anything at all. The end goal is to be comfortable with learning and implementing on a consistent basis. There's a long list of small goals that I could add on, but I'm a huge fan of baby steps :)
The other muscle that I need to work again is my twitter fingers. I was once an avid tweeter but strayed from the app after my college years. I'm back in the game on the tech side of twitter and it's a whole collaborative/encouraging space that I had no idea existed. Time to break my introverted chains and NETWORK . . scary to even type it but look at me DOING IT :)
. . .I'm too introverted for my own good, but one day maybe I'll openly like people again. Deal?
