Programming Bootcamp Day 1
The admissions process was definitely challenging. They gave me a coding project with a deadline to finish. So, I again started teaching myself more coding to try and figure out how to solve this program. After a week or so of not sleeping and tireless trial and error I had finally solved it. This was the first time I felt like I actually learned something. After review of my project I was given an offer to enroll in the next cohort. I was very happy and excited to finally start learning what I wanted to. After accepting my offer to Devleague, I ended up walking away from UH. I made this decision after researching job qualifications in this field. My research had lead me to one decision, you don’t necessarily need a college degree. Most employers only cared about what you can do and its obvious through your portfolio. I’m all in now, no turning back.
After I graduate, I hope to start working right away as a junior developer in any way that I can. I have so many interests in this field that I want to learn it all. I would like to get in with a small company that will mentor me a little and make me into a even better developer. This nice this with this field is you can never stop learning. There is always something new to learn or another way of doing something better. After finishing this class I will use the foundations that I built to learn other programming languages and applications to open up more doors to me.
My dream job would be working as a remote developer so that I can just travel and do my work from wherever I may be. I know that this is totally possible and many developers do this. One of the perks of working in this industry. For now, I will just keep working my ass off staring at a computer for 12+ hours a day soaking information. After that, it’s all up to me where I land. One thing I do know is that I can never put down that keyboard or I will be giving up everything I have been working for.
