Key moments

For the inaugural episode of the La Vie en Code podcast, Nicole talks about her own journey in self-taught web development, and how her life lined up perfectly to take the career change plunge.

Thank you for joining me for my very first podcast episode! In this episode, I discuss where I grew up and my very imaginative childhood brain. As a young girl, I loved finding different things to take apart, observe, and put back together. In fact, it fueled my love of the technical world, whether I was aware of it or not. When college came around, I began my major in computer science, but I gave up.

When college came around, I began my major in computer science, but I gave up. I switched my major and used a work study to help feed the technical yearn in me. However, this opportunity taught me a lot. I solidified my knowledge on several subjects by teaching others through this work study opportunity.

Fast forward, I graduated college and was fired for the first time. It sparked my interest and “plan” to teach myself web development. I was ready to go back into the industry, and I was not going to give up this time.

I would love to hear from you about your thoughts on my first episode. Although my main goal is for self-taught web developers to benefit from listening, I also want to chat with you and get to know you!
