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

This has worked for me too. I’m of a similar age to the author and was working in a completely different industry to web development. I contacted approximately 60 companies and 1 offered me a position as a junior front-end developer. I’ve been happily working now for over 6 months and have learnt a lot during this time. I don’t think there is anything that replaces working on a team with senior developers. If you want it, go for it. You only need one ‘yes’.
