Tips On Building A Tech Startup-Learn To Code |Chapter 4:My Entrepreneurship, Log 3|Colluide

Topic: Benefits Of Learning To Code

Taking a break from pitching your ideas via networking events or entrepreneur groups on LinkedIn was a breath of fresh air. At times it was frustrating to try to impress all these important people with no results. Now I felt that it was a good time to re-group and perhaps reconsider my strategy while I educate myself in coding. In order to improve the likelihood of Colluide’s success I was constantly getting feedback from entrepreneurs and developers. Along with that I was constantly seeking to improve my pitch, design, and marketing strategy for Colluide.




“Entrepreneurship is a journey not a destination”


An inconvenient truth that was constantly bombarding me was the faulty outdated code and scripts used to build my website. Despite the over-whelming compliments on the design of the college recruiting website, there were too many flaws that kept arising. The issues kept getting more and more disastrous; the more I wanted to avoid the bare truth, the more it would come back to bite me. The website needed to be completely revamped, but it was too hard to just start over after all the time, work, and money that were put into the project.


The purpose of coding extends far from being competent in understanding how to write in different programming languages. It helped me to be able to construct and design much better designs for the website. During my lessons and time away from investor hunting my brain was popping with new ideas for features and designs for the website. Another benefit in learning to program and code is the foresight in hiring and managing developers. Fully understanding the nature of your software and website will facilitate explaining the job that needs to be done to your workers.

During my training in the Dash program at General Assembly, they had fun and detailed program that teaches a beginning user step by step on the basics of coding in actually building websites, blogs, and apps. I used to do a lesson each day to finish the part time program of learning to be a developer. In addition to learning to write code and scripts General Assembly offered a vast variety of classes and workshops. In my experience, having a strong love and understanding for the future of technology will only aid your everyday life. The classes broadened my grasp of websites, mechanisms of the internet, SEO marketing, and computers in general. It will be a useful skill to be able learn new software and have the knowledge to fix everyday computer hassles that annoy all of us.


These would stem to topics of building websites to assisting entrepreneurs in writing business plans. They have many experts and founders of startups coming to teach fresh minds on many topics. It was my benefit to attend a few business pitches to receive workshops to learn from the best. After bouncing my ideas and website to more and more people I was getting more feedback pushing me to a new decision.



Taking classes was fun and nostalgic of college, it was fast paced and another skill that I could add to my repertoire of skill-sets. However, the more I discussed my ideas with people and learned from their mistakes I had to come to the realization that I cannot build this business myself. I needed help in some form or matter. I was really glad for the networking and clarity that General Assembly’s resources provided me along with helping me to reach a new conclusion for my startup.


I know it’s late but congrats to all the new college graduates! However, please remain cognizant of your debts if you have any and not just the glamour of graduation.
