I remember when I first wanted to learn how to code and become a web developer. Then I saw all these options which lead me to asking; what is a front end web developer?

All I knew is I wanted to learn how to make websites from scratch using code, which would give me more control over my work.

Then I was bombarded with all sorts of questions like “what kind of web developer do you want to be?”

I just figured out that I needed to learn how to code in order to make websites and now I have…

Getting started in the world of web development or creating your own website is hard enough.

Don’t let the choice of picking the right hosting company hinder you from building…

So you want to buy a website address or what’s known as a domain, or url.

Great, that means you either trying to build a website, start an online business, create a portfolio, or maybe start a blog.

Either way you want to know what is a domain name and how to get one.

Well you have come to the right place.

In this comprehensive guide I will explore the ins and outs of what is a domain name and how you can buy one.

Buying a domain is not hard at all.

But understanding what it is and how it works can get quite intricate, but it’s still pretty simple to understand overall. click to continue reading…

When I started to learn how to code I was looking for good sources to begin my journey as a web developer.

I did not know what that entailed but I then discovered that front end web development was the track I wanted to be on.

What that meant was creating websites from scratch with code.

Basically how the site would look when a visitor comes to your site, the “front end”.

Get it?

But I didn’t know what code to use to make this happen.

Through my research I learned that the 3 primary languages for making websites were HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.

I now knew what I needed to study, but where should I start.

That’s what lead me to writing this post now.

So what exactly is JavaScript and how does it relate in the whole spectrum of learning code.

Well that’s what we’re going to explore and breakdown some of the core concepts of the language.

JavaScript can be defined as many things, but I would like to explore it in its essence that I found easy to understand and thus giving me more confidence in learning the language.

Before we begin defining the javascript I want to define what a script in coding is and what all programming languages share in common.

A script is simply a set of instructions a…

Have you ever wondered what are the benefits of learning code?

I mean why should you even attempt to learn it?

Is it only for smart geniuses and nerds?

Nope, but you will feel like one when you do learn to write some code.

Well I’ll like to point some of the benefits I have experienced and I think you can as well.

In reality the possibilities are endless, but how can you know if you don’t know what potential is out there.

1. Job Opportunities

Did you know the demand for employees in the tech industry is growing rapidly…

So the question is…

What does it take to become a person who codes?

This was one of the things I asked myself when I started my adventure .

So I thought I would make a list of some of the characteristics of what it takes to become a coder.

This list may surprise you because the answers may not be what you think.

1|A Willingness To Learn

Yup, the first thing to start learning is to simply have a desire.

Learning how to code is much easier than what you may think.

I know when people hear the term…

According to Forbes article it is estimated by the year 2025 wireless voice and data networks will be available to every human on earth.

Did you know there are about 7 billion people on the planet and 2025 is literally about 5 years away.

The rate of how fast technology is growing is simply unimaginable to where we were in just the 80s.

It’s kind of scary if you ask me.

So what does this mean for the average person?

Well in reality we see that technology has become like a vital necessity in our lives.

In fact if we took our cell phones away from us we would feel naked and we wouldn’t know what to do with ourselves.

What does this mean for our future?

Growing up I never had to worry about much.

Frankly because everything was really taken care of for me.

Food, clothing, shelter, anything you could think of my mother went out of her way for me.

I know when you first hear that you probably think I had it good.

And it felt like that when I was a kid…

But the reason I was treated like a spoiled rich kid was because I was the baby in my family.

The last one.

What made my mother go out her way to try and do everything for me and protect…

I remember like it was yesterday.

A special day was approaching and I couldn’t wait.

This day would change everything for me.

In fact, I couldn’t stop thinking about it.

These thoughts would haunt me like it were a nightmare.

But I knew when this day came it would be like the prison guard had come and opened the door to my one bunk man cell and said…

“You’re free to go”.

This was it…

The day I became a man.

Or at least I thought so.

It was my 18th birthday and all I could think…
