  1. What are your coding goals?

    My coding goals are first to create financial, location and time freedom. I want to become a front end web developer and look into the transition to video game development as a game developer. I want to learn different languages that are specific to my interests and job and that will give me the skills and knowledge I need to feel comfortable and capable in this field.

  2. What does successful learning look like to you?

    Successful learning to me means the ability to retain the information and then replicate your own version of what you learned. Its easy to memorize and replicate what you learn but to apply it with your own features and structure and style shows that you are actually taking the information in and are able to apply to real life. I also feel like successful learning looks like joy, intrigue and problem solving. When I am learning successfully, I am having fun while doing it, I am excited to learn what comes next and I look forward to solving a problem that I created in the first place.

  3. How do you plan to measure your success?

    I plan to measure my success with regular real life challenges that are at the level I am currently at.

  4. Do you have any particular timeline/deadline for learning to code?

    I want to learn to code quickly so that I can make a career change into tech. Even if my first job in tech isn't as a developer, I want to have the baseline knowledge so that I can relate to the field as I continue learning and immerse myself in the environment. All day when I'm at my career job, all I can think about is coding and the next time I will be able to learn and practice something new.
