Hi! I'm Kristen, I am a non-technical employee at a software startup in Austin. Currently trying to learn some basic web development, starting with HTML and CSS, while getting more comfortable with Git & VSCode. The hardest part right now is balancing the screen time I have to have (working, paying bills online, video chatting with family) vs screen time I want to have (learning, exploring, tinkering, creating). Sometimes, after a day of literally just looking and typing, I'm as tired as I was when I did manual labor.

I know that feeling! Good luck on the learning. You'll pick up a lot just by hanging around DEV, even if a lot of it goes over your head.

I'm years and years into my career and still don't think I'm all that good at git. So sounds like you're making progress.
