Introduce myself

Raquel Santos | RS-coding
Junior Front-end web developer
Updated on ・1 min read

Hi,

my name is Raquel Santos, also known as RS-coding.
I have a bachelor's degree in Visual Design and have worked for many years in the field, but as I took a specialization course in front-end web development in 2016-2017, at the end of 2018 I decided to quit my previous job, moving to Amsterdam-The Netherlands with my boyfriend to find new opportunities and started studying code in my spare time while working at clothing stores to have money to pay the bills.

In 2020 I decided that my free time was not enough to learn, so I gave up working in stores and just dedicate myself to focus and studying fulltime reviewing some things about HTML and CSS I already knew, learning javaScript, and the new frameworks on the market.

I resolved to write my journey as developer by telling you what I have been doing, my struggles, my accomplishments, and things that I find important to help me find the job of my dreams.

Welcome to the dev community Raquel. I have been a SWE, Data Scientist, Networks Engineer, Graphic Designer. But nothing comes close to being as fun as Web Development. I am sure you are gonna have a great time with it. What frameworks are you interested in learning?

I remember when I started learning HTML and CSS. It was after a year I left college after studying the first semester of BSCS for three months. I was also really depressed. Learning HTML and CSS was life changing for me. I hope, you find it the same for you.

Hi Muhammad. how are you?I am developing code a long time ago. Almost 5 years. HTML and CSS is very easy from me. What it is more difficult is JavaScript

Not necessary a particular thing. I find more difficult in a way of need more time to assimilate . Its a programming language which html and css are not. It takes more time and more focus about it.
