An Unexpected Coder

opera singer turned web developer

About Me

Catherine Meyers

Hi, I’m Catherine and I’m a Ruby newbie. I came to The Flatiron School after leaving a career as a professional opera singer, and I am constantly amazed at the parallels between these two careers.

In fact, it was my background in music that led me to my first experience with coding. While working at a music school with an archaic website that no one knew how to update, I took it upon myself to learn HTML, and updated it myself. I enjoyed it so much that I started playing around with reformatting the site as well.

Since then, my love for creating things through code has only deepened. The more I learn, the more infatuated I become!
