Discussion on: How did you realize you wanted to learn to code?

I grew up in a not very "tech-savvy" household, so when I was younger I didn't even consider coding as a possible path for myself. After working at environmental non-profits for the past 8 years though, I became focused on Development Operations and managing donor databases. I wanted to learn more about the "back-end" of how things worked, so decided to try out coding. I coded for the very first time this past Fall attending a bootcamp info session and was immediately hooked. I've now graduated from CodeSquad with a certifictae in Full Stack Web Development, and am excited about continuing to learn and build my skills!
