Why wouldn’t I want to learn to code? That’s probably a much better question. Simply put, I’m a firm believer that just about anything you do (career-wise or just as a hobby) can likely be enhanced by knowing how to program a computer.
I come from an Internet Marketing background, where the user is King and it’s your job to creatively give them what they want. I started off writing SEO articles (that’s an acronym for content that’s designed to make Google like you). But that content doesn’t do much good sitting on your hard drive. So what did I do? I learned how to put the articles on the Internet.
These simple examples illustrate why I felt so compelled to learn how to code. I was scratching the surface by hacking together bits of code to satisfy these needs. This new found excitement about programming is what led me to learn more code at Coding Dojo. After graduating from the bootcamp, I can now come up with even more creative solutions to these kinds of problems and further feed my excitement about programming!
