Browsing the web when I was younger, I hadn’t really taken into account or appreciated the animations within websites or web apps, whether it was a component transitioning somewhere on the page or going through some hover animations.

What I had to remind myself the first week of coding Bootcamp.

At the time of writing this article, I am attending Flatiron’s software engineering program. Throughout the rigorous first few weeks of learning and retaining as much knowledge as I can, I’ve learned both good and bad habits through the experience thus far. Being a…
