Wake up and code! 👊🏻👩🏻💻
Working on some html and html5 today, just getting a hand on the basics. P.S. Did you spot my pumpkin bread candle? I'm breaking out the fall, baby!!!
Are you interested in coding? What is your favorite computer activity?
Throwback to studying by Whitefish Lake in Montana!!
My screen brightness was so low because obviously there's no outlets by the dock!! 😂
First semester has started in full force this week, I'm excited and motivated to learn and do super well this year!!
Has school started for you yet? Do you kinda wish you were still coding on holiday? 🍹🍹👩🏻💻👩🏻💻
We spent the day volunteering at a local elementary school helping them create personal websites and track their own educational goals. Decided to hit up happy hour afterwards and loving all the stories from the students
Not gonna lie, pretty jealous of the fact that they have laptops in the classroom and are learning all these things so young... but these kids are gonna grow up to do some seriously amazing things!! 💪 -❤️B&R
Today's been a challenging day - I travelled down to London yesterday to deliver paid search training today - except I got to the venue today and it turned out the training session wasn't until TOMORROW. I'd had a mix-up with the dates and booked the wrong days while recovering from surgery.
So this sent me into a little bit of a downward spiral today 😖 - feeling frustrated and angry at myself and just generally like a massive failure (ironic, given I'm giving a talk next week about how to handle a fear of failure!). Layering that on top of feeling like I'm a bit broken at the moment in both body (hip surgery, advanced arthritis in my early 30's) and mind (I've been more acutely aware of my autism recently), I wasn't in a good place.
BUT, it's not a big deal. A new hotel room was swiftly sorted for tonight (isn't it cute?) and it only cost £10 to change my train 🚄 ticket home. I was able to get lots of work done from the office and enjoyed a little walk around London tonight and dinner out.
It was good to do something different to try and clear my head. I'm not a failure just because I haven't had the same successes as others, or because my career has gone down a different path. There's nothing "wrong with me" for not having been able to make the most of certain opportunities that proved really effective for others. That's just life. We all have different skills and opportunities to show those skills off.
There is more than one ladder to success! I think that's something worth remembering.
And a big thank you to the amazing @programm.r for the chat and words of support today ❤️

Sorry I’ve posted so late! I’m still trying to find a balance with work and coding. 😅 I’ve been coding still! I just forget to post on IG hahah.
So far using @teamtreehouse is really helping me understand the dynamics of Swift and what each variable means and the rules about combining different types together.
I was using a tutorial that was helping me learn Swift as well but I can now use both to assist me in learning layouts hands on and the syntax which is super helpful! ☺️
It’s definitely helping me out of my comfort zone and gets me excited in the mornings and after work to code. I’m thankful for retail but I want to move on as a developer. I pray that it’s very soon!
So thank you who still is still rooting for me and any positivity passing through! I appreciate everyone so much! I hope you guys are doing well and please tell me what you’re working on! [04|100]
Life changes in an instant, sometimes I don't know if I'll be doing this forever. But everyday I do know, sitting at my computer that God is working out my details, in the simplest way he shows he cares, he sees me in my corner, he reminds that his plans toward me are good. He reminds me that he is a promise keeper. In the midst of storms and calm he is right there. I'm allowing him to work out the details. #faithpost

"In your opinion, what is the difference between an Instagram feed that is pleasant to look at, and an Instagram feed that is… not so pleasant?😅 What are some of your favorite insta design tips?⠀
I currently don’t consider myself good enough at design to call myself a designer yet. And I definitely don’t see myself as a photographer! On the other hand, I can totally see myself acquiring those skills if I put in the work! Just because I have defined myself as a programmer doesn’t mean I can’t explore other skillsets!🤗 #growthmindset ⠀
Some basic design hacks that I’ve learned so far:⠀
➡️make use of white space to make your feed appear less crowded⠀
➡️use the same filter for every photo⠀
➡️have a consistent, similar theme to your photos (e.g. @codedad + @nitrocoder + so many other ppl)⠀
➡️this is something that I personally enjoy doing is inserting my brand symbol (the symbol tattooed on my hand) as a watermark into my photos🤗 it just makes me happy. Hoping that one day people will be able to recognize it and what it stands for (will elaborate on that in some future posts!)⠀
Over the past few months, I’ve been playing around with out a bunch of different styles (have no ideas if you guys have noticed 😂), a blue color palette, text over images (didn’t like that), only photoshoot photos… still trying to find my style! Everyday I think I’m getting closer though!⠀
Day[7/100] #robs100daysofcode#100daysofcode#100daysofreactnative – looking forwards to getting started with my basic meal tracker mobile app today!⠀

Что нужно знать, чтобы стать джуниор-разработчиком?
У нас на курсе часто задают этот вопрос) К сожалению, единого перечня, что должен знать джуниор - нет. Всё очень зависит от компании, деятельности и задач.
Но вот примерный список для начинающего программиста (веб-разработка):
✔️Основы Python (синтаксис, функции, циклы, классы)
✔️Фреймворки Flask, Django. Лучше всего иметь 2-3 проекта в Гитхабе с использованием этих технологий. Поверьте, это не так страшно, как выглядит, можете прийти к нам на DjangoGirls - и оп, у вас уже один проект на Django есть)
✔️Очень часто для веба требуется знание http-запросов, тут вашим другом будет библиотека requests
✔️Нужно в целом понимать, как работает сайт, как происходит запрос данных и их выдача на страницу.
✔️Базы данных и sql.
Фронтэнд - знание html, css, как веб-элементы должны располагаться на странице.
✔️ Знание bootstrap. Лучше также сверстать 1-2 макета и выложить на Гитхаб.
Кажется неподъемным? Не волнуйтесь, на наших курсах мы охватим все эти темы, и, скорее всего, ваш проект будет использовать в той или иной мере все эти технологии. Представляете, какое резюме у вас будет к концу курсов?
Hello Instagram friends 👋🏼.
How is everyone doing today? Check out this awesome “Mondays are for dvlprs” shirt👚 I got from @dvlpr_apparel and the beautiful MacBook case I won from @the_woodwe 💻.
Just wanted to stop by and give you a little update about what’s going on in my life right now. This is my fourth week back in college and things are getting really serious 😓📚.
This week we looked at classes, objects, and Object Oriented Programming. We talked about how classes are really data-type definitions and objects are simply complex variations based on those data-types. Next week’s topic will be about Polymorphism.
Polymorphism refers to the ability to present the same interface for different forms. Although the concept of polymorphism is the same in all programming languages that support it, its implementation differs from one language to another.
It helps to promote flexibility in designs by allowing the same method to have different implementations. In essence, you can leverage polymorphism to separate from implementation. It promotes code reuse and separation of concerns in your application.
So tell me, what are you currently working on? I hope everyone is having a beautiful week so far 🌸☺️
just finished a HIT gym class from my desk (!!). The heart rate monitor around my chest tracked my HR and calories throughout the class. This is all part of @classpasslive new product which lets you stream classes from your home, track your workout through the monitor piece and even leaderboard your status against the other members so you feel that energy/push to do better you’d feel in a class env. You can watch my experience via stories. TLDR; I am a fan ...and also exhausted from this work out ha. I love how tech is helping make exercise more accesible and letting us track our progress so we can workout smarter. Definitely check out the @classpasslive product, it comes recommended and I’ll like you to a free trial 💪🏼👌🏼✨. cily #healthylifestyle#partner
Trust that you can do it, trust in yourself and trust the process. If you don't do it, no else will! Keep pushing, take risks, learn to take rests when necessary, and don't look back! 💪🏼 👩🏻💻
Happy Hump Day everyone! What are you up to? 👇🏼
Hey everyone! I'm baaaack!
I want to thank everyone that stuck around and the ones that have started following me since I started my break. I feel so much better! I was going to post on Monday, but my phone was acting up because of condensation from our backpacking trip over the weekend. It's fine now, just some time in a bag of rice treated it well.
I've left some pictures from the hike up to camp in my stories, but not too many because it didn't take long for the cold weather to make my phone accumulate condensation.
HOW IT WORKS? 1-on-1 online coding instruction. 30 minute sessions. Once a week. No carpool. All from home. Code individual, fun websites. Something to be proud of. Monthly subscription. Cancel whenever. #skillstruck#code2joy
👩💻 “I am in the field but hadn't learned some of the new standards and codes. This class really help bring me up to speed quickly. It was fun, relaxed but intense. Would do it again!”

Perseverance...The art of failing yet refusing to give up!
Been a bit out of wack as of late....I mean, I took a few necessary days at the end of last week to celebrate my little boys 2nd birthday with him and all the family. So I'm not counting those 😂. But the past two weeks I've been a bit on and off.
Fast forward to this morning and you can not begin to imagine just how much I wanted to stay in bed all day. 🛌
Despite my inner voice saying "fuck the world" I persevered, and got up at 4am regardless. I have to keep chiping away. There's really no choice.
However productive this was, more than anything, it gave me the small victory I needed to take on this week! This game 💯 mental.
No matter how many times you fail between now and Sunday, keep persevering guys!! 🙌

Thank you so much!!!

"Last week I had to give a training to some clients about a project I worked for almost 3 years, now they are going to take care of that code, so I had to explain certains parts of the code, It was a project with 3 years of code in a folder. Imagine that. I barely remember what and why I program in the way that I did. But fortunately, most of the lines of code I wrote reveal its intention. So explain them, was like reading a story. But honestly I should comment more about specific parts of the project. And I should had better practices about reusing functions and their relationships. Ok, the project works. Best practices, definitely no. In my defense, was my very first big project on production, and never had a mentor about how to do it.⠀
Lesson learned. Best practices and experience: matters.⠀
In my way to I dont know where, but definitely not in the same version of me, my current thoughs are: mastering yourself and learn to live in the moment. So Im figuring out what habits, thoughts, people, food, works, I want in my life. Managing multitasking, decisions, stress, procastination, well spended time, information overwhelm, reactions over things I cant control, failures, questions, improvisation, though process and the list continues. ~⠀
Im aware that this is a journey that takes years. I want to see what happens if I dont give up.🤓💪🙆⠀
Monday and raining. I love rain.⠀
A year ago we started simple coding camps for teens, and it is crazy how far we have come since then. I love this video because it captures these awesome teenagers breaking down barriers and trying something new! We have such an incredible team doing amazing things. Being able to work with awesome students every day is special, and way more fun than doing the boring background work. If you know a teen sitting on a couch this summer, we still have some openings in Orange County and Utah County 🤙🏽 #skillstruck
I am excited to share all that Skill Struck is doing (in case you couldn’t tell 🙃). We live in a world being evolved by technology, and this technology is impacting the home. We really believe we can make a difference in how parents and kids view their screens and devices. I am grateful for the wonderful friends and family who are helping to accomplish this purpose. We have opportunities for kids to learn, and college students to teach. Please follow the difference we are making on FB, Insta, and LinkedIn! #skillstruck
