My First Dev Post

In the month of February, a good friend of mine wanted me to participate in a hackathon with her, and she wanted to make a project using WebDev. Being a newbie in the coding world, I didn't even know HTML at that time, but I heard it was super easy, so I agreed to be on her team.
Sadly, our idea was rejected, and so my motivation to learn Web Development vanished. Poof.
After about a month of Procrastinating, I've finally started learning Web Dev, Thanks to a Twitter user named Pratham, who shares really good content about WebDev. That really motivated me to "Get Started".
Now, I've taken up a course on Coursera, completed my week 1 module and week 2 module in about 2 days :)
No, I'm not that smart, but It's not that hard, just like what everyone says.
So, right now, I know HTML, CSS Basics, Box Model, styling, positioning, and similar stuff. I've also taken up the commitment of "100 days of code" on Twitter, i.e. I tweet about my daily progress in Web Development so that I have something to be accountable for if I feel like quitting anytime.
I'm happy to have finally started, and It's really fun, honestly.
Right now, I'm working on submitting my week2 module assignment.
I know it's due next to next week, but the sooner the better :)
Looking forward to sharing my journey in the field of Web Development.


P.S.: I'm loving this Developer Community. I never really worked much in groups or participated in circles. But this seems fun, people are really genuine and helpful.

Hey Nishi!
I've just joined Dev last night and yours is the first article I've read.
Great work and a great start. I started last summer on Net Ninja tutorials doing HTML/CSS & JavaScript then on to React/Node/Angular and now some SQL and C# (via Unity) and motivation has definitely been something to manage. I'm currently searching for my first dev role and your post was really energising and inspiring, so thanks! :-)
