I Made 180 Websites in 180 Days

I took an unusual path to becoming a software developer. I taught myself to code by making 180 websites in 180 days. My background was in fine art but I was fascinated by the internet. I realized I wasn’t content with just using the the cool products that connect us around the world, I wanted to build them. So with no real coding experience, I decided to JFDI.
In this session, I’ll cover what inspired me to take the path of self directed learning and what challenges I faced along the way. The first websites I made were simple and only used a tiny bit of html and css. By the end I was making dynamic, interactive apps using Ruby on Rails and Node.js. In this talk I'll present a selection of some of my favorite websites from the project which include games, toys, physics simulations, data visualizations and real time communication apps.
