Welcome to my first blog post on my brand new blog!
Up until then, I had a basic understand and could hack stuff together, but I certainly struggled to build anything from scratch.
A function? What was that? 😅
So I embarked on that journey spending weekends taking courses, working on small personal projects, and learning the ropes…
I'm glad I did! It didn't take long for it to payoff.
And over the next few years, it was clear WordPress (the CMS platform I'd been specializing with – and still do today) started to go in the direction of JS as well.
Up until a few years ago WordPress was by all intensive purposes built on PHP. That's not the case today. It's close, if not beyond, 50/50 these days.
I also learned how to ‘program' through JS… I broadened my studies to including general programming, databases and more. I even read books like “Code Complete”… heavy stuff. haha
Bottom line, I attribute my level of success today 100% on making that decision.
The decision to become JS Focused changed everything for me.
I have a lot to talk about. Stay tuned!
