How I landed 2 part-time dev jobs

If you don't want to read my 15 points, 
here are some insights I learned along the way.

It takes times. 
Review my timeline.
Face-to-face networking is super-effective, at least, in my case.
I love education. 
I would not be here without it.
I have not completed the FCC front-end certificate. 
I will eventually finish it.
I have not completed FEND.
I most likely won't complete it.

As I am writing this, I am physically and mentally exhausted.
I'll come back in 12-48 hours and answer questions.

Don't give up. I didn't.

Here’s a quick rundown of my journey.

Thank you everyone and @QuincyLarson! :smiley:


Awesome! Congratulations on your roles. And congratulations on winning the scholarship. It sounds like you’ve been patiently building your skills over the past few years.

You’ve used a lot of different resources. If you have time, you should review some of them over in - I a lot of us would benefit from knowing the strengths and weaknesses of these various programs and resources.


Thank you, @QuincyLarson!

I’ll set aside some time to do some reviews.

I clicked on the link and it said that the page does not exist.

I was just about to ask about that. I think he meant to link: … he did say reviews :stuck_out_tongue: haha, seems like a typo.
