Hi there! My name is Yatit Thakker. I am a self-taught programmer who got into Web Development and Computer Science by accident. I taught myself HTML, CSS, and JavaScript through Codecademy and used that knowledge to start an educational technology startup company that helps high school teachers and students learn better. 

I want to share this knowledge of programming with other potential developers (like you) and help them succeed and apply this knowledge to their existing careers or maybe even inspire a career change!
