Day 18 of #100daysofcode. SO ready for the JS unit in the #treehouse FEWD Techdegree. I feel like JS, HTML, and CSS represent the three virtues in the Triforce. Now that I'm getting into JS... I'm feeling balanced ⚖️⚔️!— JoJo (@jowebdev2020) April 28, 2020
The @treehouse #techdegree gets you a much more in-depth experience, access to the Slack channel, peer-review, & building a (graded) portfolio of projects, PERFECT if you're a first-timer looking to get momentum to (as in my and @shilvia_88's case) make a career change. 🙂🏢👩💻— Ryan Whitney (@spaceman_ryan) February 14, 2020
