Engineering a Plan for Engineering
Hey. So, you’ve heard how engineering is a bottleneck for the human directory. And you’ve heard how I’ve decided to go it on my own.
So, how am I going to do this? I’m glad you asked. Here are my resources:

These books are beautiful inside and out. Seriously, they are gorgeous. I’ve bought them because I hear they are pretty damn good, and am looking to them to supplement and improve my knowledge regarding the front end.
So, I’m a full time college student studying cognitive neuroscience at the University of California, San Diego. It’s not too bad, but it obviously does take up a lot of my time. So, what I am going to do is devote every waking hour, because honestly, this won’t get done any other way.
So, I’ll push through FCC while studying Eloquent JS simultaneously. When I decide to build projects, which I understand is the only way to truly further yourself as an engineer, I will leverage the skills I am learning, and if needed, peruse the other two textbooks.
My schedule will be restricted to whenever I can find time. Ideally, I would be devoting Saturday, Sunday, Monday, Wednesday, and Friday to the cause, while doing the impossible task of cramming all my school work during Tuesday and Thursday. But in practice, I will have to make time during other days to accommodate, as midterms and finals are brutal folk I don’t wanna screw with.
With at least 3000 hours in front of me, and somehow assuming I can keep a rate of 50+ hours a week coding, I’m looking at maybe becoming kinda competent by the end of August. Goddamn.
Sayonara, social life.
