This is my first Dev community blog post, so let me introduce myself. My name is Nate Hankes. I am a combat veteran and a research and development chemist. Shortly after watching the Netflix documentary, The Great Hack, I decided to embark on my journey to code. I have an entrepreneurial spirit, so the possibilities of forging a path in tech excite me.
I do not hav tons of coding experience but I can record my learning process. Fortunately, I have a friend in the industry and he gave me three pieces of advice to orient me:
- Download Visual Studio Code (VSC)
- Build something right away
I set out to build a calculator I could use to complete dimensional analysis problems in my work as a chemist.
I've published the beta version at ConversionCalc via zeit.co
I am preparing to begin the vetswhocode bootcamp in 2 weeks. I hope to use my new found knowledge to make the application user friendly, mobile accessible, and intuitive.
I will post weekly to share what and how I am learning. Follow me to keep tabs on the journey.
