100 Days of Code
#0# I am taking the leap and shifting from offshore to Python-Dev
Going online reading the articles that people are writing every day about changing careers, I am in ow of the courage it took them to do it but I was forgetting about a major factor that leads them there in the first place.
Ever since the pandemic started, the transition to the digital has become crucial to stay alive in a murdered market, especially if your business relies on human interaction like sales, or in my case, offshore surveying.
The impact didn’t hit me right away but then we began to see these emerging giants that managed to develop models, apps, and creative ways to satisfy the market while serving the greater interest to fight against this alien that invaded our lives and pushed us to evolve in an exponential trend.
When you see the stock market, Bitcoin went double its worth after only 6 months of the first lockdown, people are writing and vlogging about how they made their first million and even billion, laughing about 50 cents when he paid for his pizza with 2 bitcoins in 2010, back when it was only worth $2.
The world is changing toward an era that we can’t begin to fathom, and if we don’t choose to change and adapt, we will eventually be whipped out the surface.
I decided that it’s about time to start the 100 of code challenge and I chose Python to make an entry into the coding world and my goal with that will be to transition to A. I and data science hopefully by next year.
I know that it’s going to take me a lot of hard work and dedication and especially discipline, but I’d rather see myself succeed in this war of survival than quit and give up to mother nature.
Is the market big enough for all of us?
Between software engineering, developers, data scientists, and ML AI engineers, let’s not forget the other layers of the industry and also account for the level of competence, cause whether you like it or not, learning to code through a Bootcamp or on your own, is not something you can weigh against a CS or software engineering major no matter how you try and that’s not an issue.
People are posting every day on Youtube and other broadcasting platforms, how they made it to Google, Tinder, Netflix as software engineers or Developers but that’s not the case with everyone, not all of us want to work there, and not all of us will make it there, but instead, there’s the intermediate startups, freelancing, hell, starting your own startup, who knows, maybe you’ll be the next Elon Musk or Mark Zukerberg.
My point here is that there’s a place for everyone in every product and in every step of the production, most importantly, make sure you evolve and don’t let Nature take you down.
I am going through this Journey of coding and I will publish Once a week on the past 7 days as a way to simplify what I did to myself and if one or two read my articles and decided to do the same, at least I helped someone to get the courage to start.
