So I’m stuck in a career for lack of better words that I don’t really enjoy and want to change. During University I took some intro comp sci courses and enjoyed programming but now returning to school isn’t an option for me. I’m at home doing parental leave so I’ve got a few months to cram some knowledge before I return to work.
After looking through different websites I’ve found Python to be a very versatile and widely used language so I thought I would start my journey there. I’m not expecting to land any crazy jobs after only a few months but my more immediate goals are:
-To become an effective Python programmer via FreeCodeCamp; and
-Use the competitions from kaggle.com to gain experience and build a projects portfolio.
From there I have no idea. I’ve never applied for a job in the IT field and only know about programming portfolios from reddit and reference to github.
I guess my question is, where do I go from here?
