Former hobbyist web tinkerer, now full-time trainee web developer!
Currently refining HTML, CSS, and vanilla JS; with additional experience in Python. I love problem-solving, so the appeal of working with coding is greatly appealing, and thus far very enjoyable. When not at a terminal, I enjoy board games so a great focus for self-development is to take board games, and create digital versions of this.
Additionally, I'm an analytical person by nature, so when there is free RAM in my brain, I'm working through the Data Scientist track on DataCamp, learning Python.
