In this episode, Vaidahi Joshi, Lead Product Engineering at Forem, and writer + creator of BaseCS, BaseDS, and the BaseCS Podcast, talks about becoming a programmer after being a writer who wrote A LOT of listicles!

She got her start by customizing websites by playing with HTML, CSS, and a little bit of JavaScript, and then attended a code school for a 12-week course. She then decided to “learn in public” by making videos explaining computer science concepts to others every Monday, for a year, while learning herself – and thus BaseCS was born!
