TLDR content below…
I want to start this off by saying, “thank you”. FreeCodeCamp’s exercises are an invaluable resource and, as I dive deeper, I’m sure this board will be too. I am looking for advice on my situation. Stack selection, competition, salary, etc. But first, it may make sense to explain a bit about me. Any thoughts are greatly appreciated.
I have decided to switch careers at 49 and work toward an eventual full stack development or mobile app development position. I have been in marketing leadership for the last 20 years, but I am burned out and worry about ageism ahead. I love learning and solving business problems, so this switch felt natural, although late. I am hoping the following applied experience with the front and back-end could set me apart when I am ready to apply for my first Jr. Developer job.
– TLDR –
If you read this whole thing, thank you.
