An Ibadan Girl’s Guide to Being a Tech Bae (Part 2)

And so our story continues, the captivating tale of my foray into the world of technology.

After the years of on-and-off attempts to learn Python, I have restarted learning programming. I am studying to become a front-end developer and my learning journey began with HyperText Markup Language (HTML). Having gained some level of mastery of HTML, I have gone on to start learning Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) and Bootstrap. I have also begun to pick up Javascript.

It is important to let you know that this is not a story about a final destination. It really is a tale of my journey. I hope to share my tale with you as it unfolds.

The simple, yet profound advice I got from the near-stranger remains with me. And I would like to pass it on to you. It is to carefully select what you want to learn and to understand what you intend to do with the knowledge you are about to expend time and resources gaining.

I spent all those years wandering in the maze of tech, near-blind. Technology is not a one-size-fits-all and learning Python did not have to be my only way of entering tech even though it was my first exposure to tech. I needed to understand that front-end development was where I wanted to be and Python did not need to be the way to get there.

I hope this helps if you, like me, would love a foray into tech and you are unsure how to get in. Know your ‘Why’.
