Advice needed (bootcamp student)

Hey everyone.

I figured I’d ask on the FCC forum for some advice. I’m with a paid bootcamp and have been for over a year now. I’m nearing the end of my completion date and I’m behind due to work schedule and the pandemic nature of last year.

I’m like 80+% done but once I’m through this course, I’ll need to start building & learning languages from the get go again due to the amount of time since I learned & coded in JS. If I had to draw a straight line between my goal of getting a JNR DEV job by August 2021, completing this course isn’t the quickest way there. Instead it would be to drop it and use these next 7/8 months to fine tune my skills in JS.

I won’t stop coding, I’m pretty driven to keep coding because I enjoy building things(not to mention the god complex from the act of creation hahahaha)

I’m hoping someone can offer me some clarity on this and offer some friendly advice on what I should do.

Thank you

I’m not entirely sure what you are asking. Are you asking us whether you should drop out of your bootcamp?

Hi @webdevalex!

If you have you already spent the money on this camp and you are not getting any of it back if you drop it, I would personally finish.

I would hate to walk away from thousands of dollars spent without finishing.

if it was me, i would finish if money isn’t of highest concern (maybe you prepaid). i don’t know if you are doing this bootcamp as well as having a full time job, though it sounds like you are. if you want to break into a new industry, i think having something on a resume that sets you apart is nice.
