I was recently offered an internship based on just a couple of Python projects I made, but I don’t think that’s nearly enough to get an internship, usually, and my would-be employer has gone silent on me.
Right now I’m in a living situation where I have a month of time to focus on nothing but online computer science classes, and building projects.
The only thing is, is that, I don’t really want to keep going to school if I can’t find a way to pay for it other than taking out student loans, and I think if I can land a paying internship, I can continue to train myself how to code, and afford to continue living abroad and maybe even continue taking online classes.
I’m very relieved to see that there is a LOT more to choose from in terms of curriculum, especially with machine learning and information security, which involves both IS and Python, which have both been my primary focus for the last six months now.
So. Here I go. I’m going to try and get three certificates in one month. At least get the certificate in machine learning, and information security.
Wish me luck.
Also what’s the deal with Docker? The guy hiring me really wanted me to learn how to use it, but I’ve never had a need for it so far. It SOUNDS…Fun, but it sounds like it’s mostly meant for launching apps and being used by teams.
