FULL DISCUSSION
 

Hi everyone! My name is Ru and I used to be a psychologist. Half a year ago I have decided to learn web development and now I'm here)) I live in Russia and I also hope to improve my English by reading posts here and writing some.
Now I'm learning JS, HTML/CSS and reading about jQuery :D
Wish me luck) I do really like it!)

 

Great!
So what is your goal for learning web development? Like what motivated you to move away from being a psychologist? Or, are you learning so you can do something for your psychologist works? :)

 

Hi!) I worked with children for two years as a psychologist and now my main goal is to figure out how exactly I can teach them programming languages using funny games. That why I'm learning now)))

To be honest, that is one of the greatest goals. I really appreciate how you want to shape the future of many people. :)

What has been your struggle so far with your goal?

Thanks!)
Well, the struggle is pretty hard for me =) It's unusual to start thinking differently
Now I have learned about html/css and learning JS. Writing easy functions and websites and I like it a lot!

If you want to learn better, maybe join FreeCodeCamp?
If you want to teach kids, maybe check how others are doing at tynker.com and similar sites.

Hope you have a great journey ahead.
