Yup. Thats's me :)
First off, I would like to introduce myself.
My name is Mariana and I am from Brazil 🇧🇷 . I have a bachelor's degree in Civil Engineering, currently finishing my specialization in Structures and Foundations. However, I always liked the power and magic that come from a computer yet never have given it a try. Along with this ignored desire, when I graduated there was not much room for me from where I live (professionally-wise) and so I started to explore more and more about programming. Starting with data science then right after I got in touch with web development. As expected, my passion just reflourished (pretends to be shocked). and now I am changing careers.
When I started to get back in touch with programming, I had the fortune to come across wonderful people from the tech industry which made a HUGE difference in my life. I am truly and deeply grateful for them. It led me to many good things: an internship, meet more wonderful people, getting scholarships from online courses ... It is like all started to happen (and still is ). And now I know what I want for my professional life. Like. For. Sure. I am struggling with a lot of things and concepts and I will struggle a lot more but I feel happy, rewarded and motivated with this environment.
So ... how do I came up with the idea of this blog? 🤔 Well, I have never written a blog or anything alike but I always had the will to communicate with people and to exchange knowledge. And this blog is a good approach I found to do so (and train my English and writing haha). I believe that when we share knowledge we both teach and learn in the best way possible (active learning). Besides, when we share our journey/perspectives/tips we enable people to resonate with us and help them in their own journey. I guarantee that having someone to push you forward and/or to look up to can have a great impact on our lives.
I hope I can support you somehow and please feel free to be in touch.
Oh, and don't forget to get your daily coffee dose.
Now, let's code 🤓

True 100%. When I started blogging I did to improve my orthography but then found the importance of sharing knowledge or the stuff I'd learn.
Keep it up!
Hi Mariana, I am new to Web Development, so I am just a beginner, I am from Argentina and I am also trying to improve my English. Greetings from Buenos Aires, I'm already following you.
Hey, Gustavo! Welcome to the journey haha Thanks for commenting and feel free to reach out to me :)
También estoy estudiando español! Yo empecé este año. Entonces, se quieres puede escribirme en español también. Yo creo que puedo comprenderte :)
I am following you too. All the best!
Eu te achei no twitter. Eu to te seguindo no linkedin, no GitHub, etc...por favor nao pense que sou uma psicopata hahaha. Mas é porque eu me vi na sua historia. Me formei em engenharia civil em 2017. Pensei em ir pra area de estruturas fazer uma pós tbm mas sempre tive um interesse na area da programação que deixei de lado. Como a situação na area da construção civil esta desanimadora, esse ano decidi mudar. Confesso que tenho medo, receio de nunca ter a oportunidade de atuar na area pela minha formação ser em outra e eu nao tenho nenhuma experiência no currículo nesse ramo, mas quando encontrei vc sei lá, me deu esperanças que posso sim aprender algo novo, seguir esse novo caminho e ter sucesso.
