Hi all! My name is Taryn, and I'm based in Brookyn, NY. I'm tackling the 4th tip here by finding community as I continue my journey as a new developer!

I really appreciated the breakdown in this article regarding resources. I think that I was narrowly approaching "tutorial hell," as well as trying to read books from front to back! The amount of information regarding languages, frameworks, and libraries is so vast that it can feel overwhelming to me to know how to best structure my day and approach.

Having had my very first two bigger interviews, the anxiety persists! They were helpful to showcase my weaknesses, but my biggest fear has been not knowing if I'm ready/qualified to even receive some of these interviews! Hello imposter syndrome!

Overall I feel slightly better having read this article and am ready to continue my education, extend my network, and look forward to learning with, and from each other!
