How I convinced an employer to take a chance on me and pay me to learn to code.

Great story Rick. I did something similar in 1983. I had a good job, just completed my Electrical apprenticeship with British Steel and felt I wanted to go down the programming route. I took voluntary redundancy and went on a 2 year Electronics and Computing course and have never looked back really.

PS — You are not far from me, I’m in Sheffield
