I’ve got a strange story behind me too detailed to share here at once. All I want to say it’s a relief finally joining after putting off what I KNEW I should have done years ago, 5 years to be exact.
As of now, I’m at an existintial crisis of a sort where I know if I don’t get into the tech/development industry, I’m going to regret it for the rest of my life.
I had a “screw everything” event a few weeks back and decided to finally join FCC after reading about it for so many years. The biggest motivator for me was how many success stories FCC has produced, not to mention how warm the community is overall!
My only goals as of now are to break into a web development career and give my effort daily, no matter how long it takes.
I hope to learn a great deal and hope more to be able to give something back to a community as warm as this someday.
For now, I’ll be following my FCC curriculum and possibly supplementing it with Colt Steele’s Web Developer Bootcamp course from Udemy (by some luck, I managed to snag it with a coupon just a week ago.)
What advice could you guys give me so that I can see this through completion? I’ve read somewhat lately of #100daysofcode, and it sounds like the perfect accountability.
I’ll be glad to share what I learn as I go along, thanks again everyone!
