Thank you so much for the thorough response! Your programmer journey sounds so interesting. I think it’s really amazing how many different paths there are to getting a job in tech. And it’s super cool that they hired you and then trained you!
I knew nothing about coding when I started. Way back in middle school my mom had this html book that I used to create a website, and when I remembered that last year I thought, “well, that was cool, bet I could do better,” and started looking into it again. I’ve used free programs — codecademy and freecodecamp — to jump into learning, but I don’t understand the bigger picture at all.
I guess I’m missing the 101 class, but I’m not even sure what the 101 class would be called. I’m more of a book learner than a hands-on or visual person, so coding gets frustrating for me. I just want something I can read to connect the dots, you know?
Sorry for going on like this, but yeah, that’s where I am! I can’t really tell you what I’m interested in because I don’t understand the options. But thank you for the support; I will probably come bugging you with a question at some point! And yes, that was me on facebook :-P
