Hi! My name is Diana Carolina and my professional background is in the Art Market.
I have a degree in Clarinet Performance, studied Art History in University and have a Masters degree in Art Market studies and management of related companies, all in Spain.
I moved to London after finishing my master’s degree and have held posts across the art world where I strengthened my knowledge of the commercial aspect of contemporary art with established artists and learned more about the avant-garde and experimental work of younger and emerging artists.
I started exploring tech while working in art. In some of my job positions I had to manage the website of the company and create an e-commerce platform. I felt it was important to learn more about it so I decided to change career and retrain as a web developer. Following the birth of my daughter in 2017 I spent a year off work taking care of her and I filled my free time with learning to code.
Nowadays I am doing the Online Software Engineering Bootcamp at Flatiron School and I am busy learning React and Redux.
Before applying to my programming bootcamp I have been doing some readings and completing various online education courses in order to get the basics on HTML, CSS and JS. Here is a list of what I have done so far:
Online education courses:
- Understanding the Web
- Manage your code with Git and GitHub
- Learn the command line in Terminal
- Introduction to HTML
- Learn CSS
- Coding Bootcamp Prep
- Static Site Generators
- Metaprogramming, Ruby 2
