Hello! Newbie w/a short story here.
Hello, my name is Amy and I want to become a web developer sometime in the future. Well, reasonably soon!
I was raised in the city, but because of a lot of crap hitting the wall at once (like losing my job twice), I find myself in the hills of North Carolina. My family is from here, and while I'm grateful to have a roof over my head, It's...depressing. Not a lot of options at the time.
I was attending a community college before I moved, working towards a degree in web development. That was two years ago. Now I'm doing self study, to fill the hours and keep my brain from turning to mush. And to get a job and move away from here.
I hope I can learn and connect with the people here, maybe find a mentor of some sort to keep me on the right track. I'm signed up to take a couple of courses at a CC a few towns over, but I'm trying to learn as much as I can on my own, in case school doesn't work out and to start building my portfolio.
I hope you all can help me out! Please don't laugh at my newbie questions. I'm sure to have a few doozies. I'll search as hard as I can first, I swear!
If you made it to the end of this, thanks for taking the time to read.
