In 2015, I started learning to program with the goal of designing my own games to use in the classroom. As I progressed, however, that goal shifted towards web development. The speed with which you can get your ideas up and running –and not only running, but capable of running on a laptop, ipad, and mobile device– is so much faster.
I ended 2015 right at the end of the curriculum on FreeCodeCamp. I completed the Front End Development Certification. Frankly, I am prouder of that than I am of my Master of Teaching Degree from Virginia Commonwealth University.
Currently, here is what I am working on…
