In late fall of 2014 I took an online course on https://www.thinkful.com/. The course cover UI design, HTML, CSS, and basic Javascript/jQuery. Taking the class, I felt I already had a decent grasp on all of the topics covered. But fortifying what I felt I already knew could only be benificial. You can never have too much practice with the fundamentals.

Free course taken in fall of 2015. Course was offered by https://www.mongodb.com/, the creators of MongoDB. The course took 8 weeks to complete, taking ~ 20 hours per week. Some of the course material went a little over my head, such as Agrigation, but overall I left like I had learned a lot from this course.

Self learning

Over the last 2-3 years of learning how to write code, much of my progress has been self-taught along with suplementary learning material, weather that be paid resources or online tutorials. During the beginning of my learning experience, writing code was difficult and slow. As I have progressed, I feel I can pick up new tools and techniques with much more ease.

Coding Dojo

In the winter of 2016 until the spring of 2017 I attended Coding Dojo located in Bellevue, WA. At Coding Dojo I strengthed my skills in algorithms, learned Fullstack Python, C#/.NET core, and MEAN. I achieved a 'Blackbelt' (9.5+/10) on each stacks final exam, which was to build and deploy an application from a wireframe within 4.5 hours.
