My journey of coding began when I was around 12 years old. Before Facebook existed, there were some similar sites with profile pages which you could customize. Wanting to have a cool looking page, I somehow managed to find the source code and from there figure out that an ‘a href’ tag was a link to a URL. Similarly, I discovered that I could change the color of fonts via
font-color = red. Although my knowledge was very limited back then, with the little I learned, coding managed to intrigue me.
Fast forward, almost 18 years (it’s amazing how time flies!) and here I am attending a coding bootcamp in Koh Samui, Thailand. The name of the bootcamp is Tortuga Coders. It is a bootcamp that teaches web development.
When I first heard ‘web’ development, to be honest, I was a bit bummed out. I thought building web sites was pretty basic and boring. However, as I began to learn that web development also included developing web ‘applications’ my interest began to peek. I learned that websites like Airbnb, Facebook, and Amazon can all be built using the tools of a web developer!
As amazing as these websites were I still wasn’t satisfied. I was still unsure of my choice to study web development. I had heard a lot of good things about mobile development. I felt like I was missing out.
