This blog follows my move from a career in the humanities as a historical research consultant, with an academic background in History and English Literature, to one in web development, with a focus on Ruby, and web design.
I will begin this journey with some pre-course work, and then will eventually embark on General Assembly’s 12 week web development intensive in London, UK from June 16 – September 6. This will hopefully end with a three month apprenticeship after completion, and ultimately a job.
I will post as much as I can on this blog about interesting concepts that I come across, learning techniques, things I fail to understand, and revelations that I experience. I hope to show that even someone with a pure arts background can make the transition into the tech world, though I do not anticipate it to be easy! Please do follow along and maybe you will even learn a thing or two about the world of web development, tech and coding.
