Code First: Girls

Code First: Girls are amazing. They are not only a great organization to support women to get into tech but also a superb community. I attend a lot of meet ups and workshops organized by them and I cannot say this enough times how thankful I am to have them help me. I finished their beginners course (HTML, CSS, tiny bit of JS, Bootstrap and a bit jQuery) and advanced course in Python (@Twitter oh yeah!), met so many great instructors and students with brilliant ideas and minds. They give you guidance if you feel lost and their workshops are truly amazing. Last time I was with CFG at Thoughtworks, learning about UX design. They have courses for beginners or for people who want to get some insights into Python or Ruby.  So if you are planning to get into webdev and write some code, look at their courses and apply!

The Odin Project

I was looking up reviews about Free Code Camp to give you guys some more prospects, not just the content and what you can learn there, when I found out about the Odin project, where you can learn Web Dev skills, also fro free. (How amazing that is!!)

The website and the program seem well structured, loads of useful information, about the actual jobs and future as well. I find this is very useful as some websites just drop you deep in the water and fill you up with code. Here I had a bit broader picture and got some very interesting information. Since it is free I don’t need to say how amazing this opportunity is.

To be honest, I am teaching myself code since a year now, I finished two smaller courses and I am getting impatient 😀 But my plan is, that in the next few months I chew myself through all the things I do now, Free Code Camp, The Odin Project, Codecademy and my sweet little JS book. I just can’t wait till I finally can get into a startup or open-minded company and start my Front End Dev career. So boots up guys & girls, and keep coding.
