Of course, this was back in the 90s before awesome media technology. Mainly professors taught by droning out facts at breakneck speed standing next to an overhead projector. I give this course professor an A++ in advanced usage of the ol’ monotone vocal cords. It was my least favorite course that semester =(
Then I moved to the Bay Area (and phones and computers became eons enlightened). Living in the Bay Area is like being surrounded by an atmosphere of incessant creativity. I am a constant learner and I also try to be creative, so I took a class in UI (User Interface) Design. There was some minimal code I had to learn for a project, and it was really fun learning the code and using it in my design. I found that I enjoyed that more than the design part itself.
Unlike my college experience, I learned that in practical application; coding can be fun, creative, people centric and collaborative. So here I am, back to learning coding again. Because, I thought, “Why not?”.
