Day 1: A New Beginning

Hey all, I’m an aspiring web developer and I want to share my experience as I journey into becoming a professional software engineer.  I have decided to force myself to document my challenges and display my personal growth leading up to the work field.


For a long period of time, I started out as an ui/ux designer (before the term even existed). I always loved the idea of crafting something together and sharing it with the world via the internet. But now I want to evolve myself from a designer to  an engineer. Don’t get me wrong, I still want to embrace my design side but now I want to solve problems.

I started learning HTML/CSS roughly 5 months ago but now I want to restart. Sure, for those 5 months I made a lot of progress but it was all over the place and I did not have a proper roadmap. I do now and I plan on walking through it with the rest of the world.

My main goals by the end of the year are:

  • Be able to code up ANY mockup in responsive HTML/CSS
  • Proficient in vanilla JS
  • Prepare myself for interviews

I built a roadmap that will get me there efficiently. The actual roadmap will be available on a different day. Thanks for reading and enjoy the ride.

See you tomorrow.
