I’ve got two full stack developer job offers, all thanks to FCC. One organisation uses MEAN stack while the other uses RoR + angular + PostgreSQL.
A brief about myself:
I reside in India. I’ve done my masters in Signal processing. I’ve worked on audio codecs, like dolby atmos,dd+, etc for almost two years for a UK based company which was not performing well recently, so laid off few people across the globe. I was one of them. Meanwhile I came to know about FCC via Quincy’s quora channel. FCC caught my attention and instead of continuing on the same professional path i.e. codecs and all, I started working on FCC curriculum. After almost 6 months of hard work, I’ve landed myself two Full stack developer job offers(the best part, both companies allow remote work). So I will be working from home for both organisations contributing almost 70-80hrs a week. I want to learn as much as I can, hence the efforts.
Advice to beginners:
1)Don’t stop asking ‘why’ and ‘how’. I know it may sound cliche’, but that’s what worked out for me.
2)Don’t just rely on FCC. Use google,stackoverflow effectively. Take few online courses. Coursera has full stack course for MEAN stack. This course taught me some good concepts.
3)And lastly, don’t just read the books or watch videos. Code! a lot!
Finally I would like to thank Quincy from the bottom of my heart for developing and maintaining this great community. Without FCC I would not have reached this far.
