My name is Egle and although this is my first blog post, it is not the first step in my journey to web development. My journey started a couple years ago. I was 24, already with Masters in Pharmaceuticals, managing a pharmacy in Vilnius, Lithuania. I knew I wanted to do something different, something more. I discovered a world of web development but I didn’t have enough time to experience it with my current workload.
After about half a year my husband got a job offer in Dhaka, Bangladesh! It took us a few days to make up our minds and when we did, I quit my job, moved to Bangladesh and decided to use my free time to follow my passion for web development (and I was able to cross out exploring South East Asia of my bucket list as well!). With so many online resources it wasn’t easy to find the right track, I followed a few different online courses on coursera.org, then I found an awesome freecodecamp.com which made me completely sure I want to do this for my future career. I already had my eyes set on Viking Code School’s Immersive program, which I wasn’t able to do while living abroad. Once we decided to move to the United States I immediately applied and got accepted. My cohort starts on 27th of March!
