Hello, my name is: Amy

What excites or interests you about coding?

I've always loved puzzle games, and I consider myself to be a creative person. Put those two together and you have a developer. Believe it or not I actually enjoy that there are 10 different ways to solve the same problem. I love the conversations that happen to determine how one comes to a conclusion.

Also, if I do my job well I can make someones life easier! I've done my fair share of fighting with websites and apps that are tough to use. I enjoy trying to make the things I code as user friendly as possible.

It's taken a little while to get used to this flow, but now I love my development process:

  1. I am faced with a problem. It is way too big for me, I'll never be able to figure this out. Why am I even trying to act like I can do this?
  2. Oh! I know how to do this part. Let me start here.
  3. (10 min - 2 days later) OMFG I SOLVED THE PROBLEM! I am a genius.
  4. Repeat.

The feeling that you get when you solve a really tough problem is the best, and keeps me coming back. I now try and remember to just have patience when I think a problem is too big for me.
