“Achieving one goal at a time as my journey to programming begins.”
I saw this quote this morning and it gave me the motivation to take action and get this blog off the ground. Thank you to Believe-toachive on tumblr.
First I would like to thank you for visiting my page. My name is Asherlee and, please bare with me since this is my first blog. A little bit about myself, I’m a mother of two from NE PA. I changed careers 3 yrs ago was in the financial industry for many years, and switched to software quality assurance. My passion for technology and, software I decided to take my passion to the next level and learn to program and build mobile applications.
The Reasons why behind this blog and focus.
Resources I have used to keep me on track.
There are so many great sites that teach programming. For fundamentals W3 School is a great place to start. I also use Code Academy both are free. Besides those two sites I also use Udemy and Lynda for learning the fundamentals and the Swift programming language. Of course I can’t forget keeping myself motivated, especially during the times you cant get your code to work lol. I read many motivational books as well as technical books and, slot time on my calendar for everything.
Have you taught yourself to code? What tips would you pass along?
