– Hello There –
Welcome to my blog and thank you for stopping by. I am Jaslyn, the proud owner of Modulariti Studios, also known as Modulariti. As a front-end developer, I craft immersive websites and user interfaces using tools like Webflow, HTML, CSS, and React. I also enjoy harnessing the power of Salesforce. But, my journey to this tech world has been anything but linear. I've worn a few different hats in my time. To be completely honest, I would have never conceived of pursuing a career in tech.
How I Got Started
Allow me to transport you back to a pivotal moment in early 2019 that changed the trajectory of my career. I received a phone call from a friend. He asked me about my career plans and if I would be interested in learning to code.
I was clueless about coding, in fact, I didn’t even know he was a web developer, I just knew he did things with computers. At the time, I was a pilates teacher but, unbeknownst to him, I was seeking a career that would offer me the freedom of location independence. Perfect timing.
My friend had recently completed a professional development program that emphasized the value of mentorship. He saw potential in me because he felt that I had certain qualities that would make me a great programmer, such as being attentive to detail. He also wanted to build his own team instead of constantly hiring freelancers, so he extended an invitation to me and a few others. That was in 2019 and fast forward, here I am.
So what is my blog about?
This blog serves as a platform for me to document my journey and embrace the concept of "learning in public". I've surpassed the initial phase of absolute cluelessness and developed a certain level of "Technical Sophistication," as beautifully coined by Michael Hartl in his enlightening book series, "Learn Enough." Although I never considered myself a "techy" person, I now find myself understanding two languages—the language of technology and the language of the not-so-techy-person. This unique perspective allows me to share insights and details that the naturally tech-savvy mind might overlook.
Thank you for being here, and let's embark on this incredible journey together!
