I’m approved for a grant to study Web Dev; however, most schools only teach in the day and I’m not sure I can financially survive for 3 to 4 months. I’ve found one school w/night classes (which means it will take twice as long to finish) but I hope to find another contract to pay bills while I study.
So far, most schools use student teachers & not much support. I must understand vocabulary first (dyslexic) to grasp things quickly or I have a ton of questions (may frustrate teachers/students). Trying to study on my own I got stuck b/c I don’t know terms which hampered being able to figure it out alone. Yep, I’m scared I will stink at this and/or fail. As a tech writer, I know very lite HTML, but need to advance my career b/c contracting is getting spotty.
Some schools I’m looking at are Flatiron, Dev Mountain, Media Tech, Coding Dojo. I would like your feedback on surviving financially while in school full time and/or any thoughts you had on any of these schools (pluses or minuses). I don’t have any support financially, emotionally, educationally while in school. Would appreciate your feedback
