About

Navigating a web development career has its own quirks. And even bigger quirks when you parachute into the tech world from an unconventional path. This blog shines a light on the misfits of web development, and all the passion and struggles along the way. Organized into three main pillars:

  1. Career: Navigating the first year and planning the progression
  2. Happiness: Keeping the spark alive
  3. Communication: Working with others and remote work themes

I’m Justine, and I started my career in web development in 2016. I’ve worked as a front-end developer at a software agency, a global bank, and most recently, a national grocery chain. I’m excited to share my experiences in hopes someone new can learn from them.

People like you have been curious about the steps to take to make a shift to web development. I started this blog to help you see the value in making a shift, and feel confident in your decision, long after landing your first job.

I'm based in Toronto, Canada and love spending time with my rescue dog, McCoy. He's a gorgeous hunk:
