Laura White, Founder
Welcome! If you’ve been struggling to learn computer programming or web development, you’ve come to the right place. I started this website specifically to provide guidance to those who are new to web development and encouragement to those who are stuck.
My path to becoming a proficient web developer was a long and arduous one. It started with my enrolling in an expensive bootcamp, only to fail to learn from the instructors. The program was new and hadn’t been properly beta tested with novice programmers, so I struggled to keep up and ended up dropping out. I still wanted to learn web development and taught myself from various books and courses. I have found that finding the right book or course is an absolutely essential first step in learning any programming language.
I eventually learned enough to take on a role as a multimedia specialist. While there are several components to my job, web development is one of my most important responsibilities. In October, 2017, I completed the website migration for the Diederich College of Communication at Marquette University. Prior to the migration, I was building webpages and writing server-side code in PHP.
My Current Role
