I taught myself to code by
making 180 websites in 180 days!
Check out this blog post to read more about the project.
Since I finished the 180 Websites project, I've been continuing to develop my coding skill set. Immediately after the 180 Websites project, I worked on YumHacker, a restaurant discovery website. I tackled YumHacker solo, making everything from backend to the front as well as exploring other product development issues like marketing, SEO and business relationships. YumHacker's built with a Rails API on the backend serving a Backbone front end as a single page app.
Recently, I've been working on a side project called Zube using Node.js, MongoDB and Backbone. We're still in alpha but you can sign up on the landing page I'll let you know when we go to beta!
