I work in the tech industry but I am not a programmer by trade. I am not a newbie, I can use an IDE, and debug code, write a few Java classes here and there, but I am by no means good at it.
I have been trying off and on for 9 years to become a programmer, and while I learned a lot over the years, my knowledge is disorganized, and I don’t feel confident.
While life certainly came in the way more than once, I did not make the best use of time. So now, at 37 years old, I am giving this another go. I am going to dedicate evenings to learning programming, with the end goal of getting a promotion in my job by February 2021.
Here are the courses on Udemy I am going to finish by then -
- Java Programming Masterclass for Software Developers
- Ultimate AWS Certified Solutions Architect Associate 2020 (This is very useful for my line of work)
- The Web Developer Bootcamp (Something I am very passionate about)
I am going to update this thread on a regular basis. Considering I have a terrible track record, I hope I can fulfill my promise to take this seriously and make something of myself.
If you made it this far, thanks for reading. Feel free to join me in my journey!
