As of tomorrow I will officially have quit my job of 4 years and will be leaving behind chemistry, an industry that I have worked in for the last 7. In 1 week I will be starting a 12 week bootcamp at The Iron Yard, learning front end web development.
I have been thinking about this decision for about a year now. I have dabbled online with self taught programs but I never really stuck with it. After quitting and restarting a few times I would quit out of sheer boredom when I was learning the same thing I had already learned a couple of months prior. After being stuck in a job that I didn’t find fulfilling I have finally made the commitment to learn programming and that step started with The Iron Yard.
