How the invention of Hyperloop will set fire to £100 billion of your money.

Books of 2016

One on my goals from last year was to read more. I wanted to share 5 impactful books that stood out for various reasons over the last 12 months.

I use the word ‘read’ pretty loosely as most the books we’re actually ‘listened to’ but pretty sure that counts.

The Why, The Goals and The Fear.

For a long time, I thought that having a blog or producing content was for a select few. A select few who I thought had somehow already made it to a point where people cared what they had to say. Why would anyone care what I had to say about digital skills and the advancement of technology?

Well, almost zero.

I’m going into the NorthCoders Coding Bootcamp from a standing start with absolutely ZERO JavaScript knowledge.

Roll back the clock a couple of months then the above would have been true. I knew nothing apart from how to print “Hello World!” to the screen and definitely didn’t know the difference between Var, Let and Const.

Why I’m Doing A Coding Bootcamp!

I have taken the plunge and am doing a Full Stack Javascript Coding Bootcamp with Northcoders over the next 12 weeks.

For a long time now I’ve wanted to learn how to code.

I consider people that know how to code as having super powers, the ability to turn keystrokes on a keyboard to a ‘thing’ on the screen blew my mind the first time I saw it. So much so that for the last 3-4 years learning how has been a thought that never went away.
