After a month of debating whether or not I should continue to learn how-to code on Codecademy or start fresh on FreeCodeCamp, I finally decided to go with FCC and I’m glad I did. FreeCodeCamp’s challenges are addicting to finish because they are taught in bite-sized doses with words of encouragement, and a progress map you can follow.
But the main reason I switched over is the fact that I will hopefully be able to help a non-profit create, maintain or spruce up their site, or something similar. In the past, I’ve worked with a handful of not-for-profit art companies, which made me feel like I was actually contributing something to the world besides the click-bait type copy I started to write after a career change. So hopefully, this will lead to something great again.
