Felt so proud of myself today at work for finally getting my local computer set up for everything.
Although I did have a bit of slight anxiety about exiting out of the programs because I was nervous about not being able to set everything up again. But I think that's normal, and I'm just looking forward to when this all seems like second nature (it usually comes sooner than we think!).
I also made sure to fully document my set-up process. Especially since I'm on Windows for the moment, the process is super convoluted, so I wanted to make sure that I was creating a roadmap for myself to be able to accurately retrace my steps (and at times, missteps).
That doc actually ended up coming in handy because I was able to also share it with my team for a closer look at how to go through the installation process on Windows.
Onto Day 4! Going to work on getting more familiar with Tailwind CSS and Eleventy today so that I can jump into my first official pair programming sesh (ahh!)
P.S. I send weekly newsletters via email about the self-taught coding journey and my own coding adventures (and misadventures!) Sign up here if you want in on that! >>
