Finance to Coding – how I jumped that rope!

Hi Everyone,

This is the first time I officially share my life, or at least part of it, online. I am starting a new adventure and I thought it might be cool to keep my progress online and maybe get advise or similar stories from others that tried something like that.

I love adventures! Don’t get me wrong, I do not live the crazy life of a world traveler, hopping from one place to another looking for trills. Maybe I’ll do that next! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

I am talking about the little, everyday stuff – like spontaneously driving after work with your husband to the beach ( about two hours drive in Chicago Friday afternoon traffic πŸ™‚ ) just to watch the sunset.

Or maybe taking a complete turn in careers, like from my boring, but solid financial career to the exciting world of coding and web development. Β What was I thinking???

Well, lets say I was bored. Not only, I was desperate to find something else to do, that would let me have more time for my family and for the things I love, but also to be fun, exciting and interesting.

So here I am, looking thru classes on Udemy and Skillcrush. All said and done, I selected few classes and started learning about HTML, CSS, Javascript and all other unknown to me words from the programming world.

At first, I was scared, this was like speaking only English and trying to learn Japanese, German, Chinese, and Russian all at the same time. And adding additional bonus of math logic functions!!! Aaaa, help!!!

So, long story short, I got thru my first few classes, with many thanks to the great content and help from the Skillcrush team, Udemy instructors Rob Percival and Brad Hussey. Now what???

I know now how to create a webpage, make it look good with CSS and Bootstrap, make it do things for me with Javascript, PHP, and MySQL. Where do I go from here? Good question! I am still figuring out that part, but if you stick around I will let you know how the story goes. Hopefully, it has a good ending. πŸ™‚

See you soon,

Krasi πŸ™‚
