Does anyone have any contacts that completed the FreeCodeCamp curriculum and have gotten a job in Tech ? I am specifically interested in working for a FAANG company as a Soft Dev Eng. Just curious if this is attainable or if I would need to get more formal education after completing this curriculum.
If you poke around in the “You Can Do It” and “Career Advice” subforums, you’ll find several freeCodeCamp community members talking about getting a job as a developer. You can also find some the stories of freeCodeCamp community members under the career change tag on freeCodeCamp News.
Yeah, I think it is a hard road to go down but self taught developers have done it.
The hardest part is going to be landing the interview especially without a cs degree or prior work experience.
I still think your best bet is to work for a few years as a developer before going after a faang company. Then you might be able to leverage your network to see if you could land an interview that way.
