I started coding in 2021 while on maternity leave. Due to the covid-crisis I had lost my old position before my leave and I needed something to fight off boredom. I started to learn HTML, CSS and JS just to keep my mind fresh, took my first, short online courses, and got hooked. When I started having more time, I took longer online courses, also learning, e.g. about GitHub, Bootstrap, JQuery and other developer tools. I also completed an intensive course exploring C#, ASP.NET MVC 5 and MVC Core, including SQL server management and migration.
