At this point I just can’t imagine not coding. Over the years, coding has become something more than just a work skill for me. I suppose that’s the creative part of coding that I love — when it’s fun it’s an extension of yourself.
Many bouts of self-doubt while trying to break from my comfort zone and learn a new language, new stack, new tools, etc. I really appreciate supportive and inspirational communities like dev.to when I need to drag myself out of the self-doubt pit.
I finally finished my first SaaS app, Setlistic! Yay!
I’m an expert at seeing the forest through the trees, and being able to break things down and explain things in simple ways that people seem to understand. I typically use those superpowers in my day job, but I may try to turn that into a side project one day.🤔
I can’t wait to learn new things, explore new opportunities and build new apps. It’s exciting to think about people wanting or needing to use whatever it is that you build. I’ve always loved the idea of building things that solve problems for people.
I really look up to the younger generation of up-and-coming female developers. It’s so great to see the interest. They continue to impress me every day and I look forward to seeing the things they’ll build!
Be patient….coding is a long game. It’s like building that big snowball a little at a time. Stay positive. Ask for help when you need it. Give back when you can. Be true to yourself in everything you do.
