I was hired as a teacher/manager, and I learned to code specifically to build this app.
I started off in the same job as the other managers. I was more efficient than the other managers at technical jobs, so I got put in charge of all things tech (and fewer things sales 😄). We wanted to make our teachers' notes paperless and accessible to other teachers, so I built note systems in a no-code app platform based on spreadsheets. That was slow and clunky, so I learned to program in order to build a web app. I'm the only coder, so I needed a framework for fast development, thus Rails.
So yeah, one thing kind of just led to another. To be honest, I guess my main language is actually music. 🎶
We’re a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
