Mission 1 Code Reflection Exercise
Why am I learning to code?
I'm learning to code because I am looking to change career paths in the next few months. I have almost 6 years experience in CRM, Business Development, Inventory Management, Graphic Design and Procurement.
It has become one note for me and I recently just discovered that I love coding and will love to make a career out of it.
I have taken a few courses and then I found out about the CodeNewbie Cohort 1 Challenge.

What's my goal?
In 6 months, I hope to have gathered enough about HTML and CSS to land me a job.

In 12 months, I hope to be learning & re-learning and doing great work with my skills.

What does successful learning look like to you?
Success for me is consistency and motivation to put in the work. Understanding concepts, learning the languages (HTML, CSS and Javascript), being able to write meaningful code and eventually building my first project.

How will you measure that success?
I will start to keep a portfolio of the courses I am taking, the number of hours I put into learning and the measuring projects from simple to complex.

Do you have a timeline, or any deadlines, associated with your learning goals?
I'd like to have achieved a lot more by this time next year. New job, contibutions, projects etc.
