Scientists, humans, ordinary people like us were able to recreate how our brain works and instill it into a hardware system that actively computes complex functions. In short, I was fascinated, but…

I thought maybe along the way I can help people or just anyone really, avoid the mistakes and pitfalls that are bound to happen. A collective learning experience, because if you’re anything like me, you're probably starting off with no coding skills, just basic curiosity normally satiated with google. I’ve been weighing my options as to what learning establishment I want to invest in, there are a bunch of resources out there, coding boot camps, Udemy courses, even Ivy League schools have jumped on…

Web development is intensely creative. Yes, Intensely. I came to this realization when I was faced with a blank compiler and no idea what to design beyond a basic <html>tag. Then it dawned on me, to create is to code. I mean think about it, you have the potential to build a working interface that can potentially reach millions.

My web development journey has really shown me how important right brain activity actually is.
