Hi, I'm Jack! I'm 21 years old and am a degree apprentice at Vodafone UK. I joined Vodafone straight after my A-Levels and for the past 2 years, I've been working in the Release Management team with particular focus on the early readiness stages of a release. Alongside this, I've also been a system admin and SME for our issue management tool: Jira.
Although I enjoyed the role, and learnt a hell of a lot from it, about 2 months ago I came to the realisation that I wanted to do something else. That's when I started learning front-end web development! I'd coded beforehand at school, but this was only very basic Pascal and C#, so I was essentially starting from the very beginning.
I've built a couple of websites of my own accord, which I've used to implement and showcase everything that I've learnt - see them on my GitHub! I'm also about 45 days deep into the #100DaysOfCode challenge, where I've been posting my progress on Instagram nearly everyday.
I'm planning on using DEV basically as a mind dump for everything that I'm learning, I'll write articles on different topics and post updates about my progress. I've found that trying to explain something I've learnt to others really helps solidify the learning in my head!
Follow me for updates on my progress and (hopefully) helpful articles!
