Today I began the first step on a new adventure. I’m making a commitment to 100 Days of Code. I’ll need to code at least one hour per day and tweet my progress. I will document my progress here with posts every few days. But first a little about me.
I’m a teacher, middle school math and computers. I’ve done this for about 20 years, but I’m exploring a new career in programming. Can a 53 year old school teacher turn the page and become a programmer?
My coding skills are minimal, but I am familiar with computers, especially in education. This is my chance to take my technical skills to a new level. Today I finished my application for LaunchCode, a non-profit coding class based in St. Louis, MO. It will be several weeks before I learn if I am accepted. Meanwhile, I am working through a free course in HTML through Codecademy.
If anyone out there has a similar story or advice to share, I’d love to hear it.
