Share Posted March 2 Whew... 2023's been quite a ride so far. On november 24th, 2021, I bought an HTML and CSS course on Udemy. Coming from a career that I hated, it was a relief to find something that I actually enjoyed doing. HTML/CSS naturally led me to JS, then the whole thing flipped upside down with React and I was learning so many interesting things. Then came Node and I finally could make more ambitious things. I am not a designer and my creations never turned out the way I wanted, so I ended up moving away from the front end. But one day I found this website called Awwwards and I saw things that defied everything I've ever learned. Obviously it took me like 3 minutes to find a green library that looked like magic. And the craziest thing is that it appeared to be... Easy to use? 🤨 I spent a month trying out different things. Made a website that has 0 design cohesion (but cool and poorly performant animations) and learned a lot. Got invited to an interview this week. It went great and a couple of hours afterwards they called to tell me I was the one. A part of the interview was specifically about the website with the "interesting" animations that I created and they liked what they saw. I'll start next Monday. So yeah, thank you all for being awesome! P.S.: in due time I will explain to them how getting me into the Club GreenSock is in the company's best interest. 7 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
