To add onto the original topic: Just turning 14 here (next week) and i’m nearly done the calculator project. With the knowledge from FCC i got accepted into a just built Vo-tech charter high school for computer science and some engineering. I also got into computer science at my current school (kinda impressed the teachers with my local weather app) and the knowledge from FCC has made it easy.
all of this happened in like 9 - 10 months, I signed up February 20th of last year, and started from there. I started doing it a lot more in the past 7 months, and seriously in the past 4 - 5.
