wow, Johann! This is awesome. I just saw this in my inbox and couldn’t believe it was you! I’m so happy for you!! A similar thing happened to me when I was in Boston, and now I’m living in Minneapolis finishing a bootcamp. FreeCodeCamp totally started my love for coding. Best wishes to you! - Vela

This was just what I needed to hear today! I’ve taken classes through a community college, though I would give them mixed reviews. I started doing FCC but let it go after a while; however, I plan to take it back up again. And thanks especially for encouraging people to apply for jobs even if they don’t necessarily meet the stated requirements. (In fact, I wonder how many applicants who end up getting those jobs really even had all the ‘required’ education and experience in the first place.)

Thanks for sharing your story! It’s really a template for success. You decided to become a coder and you did it. I can speak only for myself, but I found myself becoming intimidated by professional coders. At least, by my perception and also my goal of mastering language. Which for me is Python. It wasn’t until I started focusing on what I wanted to accomplish out of the language that I started to feel I was actually making progress. You know how it is, you have game developers, big data, web programmers, machine learning, automation, and on and on. I realized the idea of mastering a language was to general of a goal. So for me, automation is a nice fit to my current career. This allows me to see progress and I can use things I learn in Python to enhance my automation skills. Connecting this to your story. You got focused on becoming a React developer and focused on what a React developer needed to know. Congrats on your success and your engagement! All the best!
