I created a tweet thread with high-level details on where I stand today.
In a nutshell, I developed software for over 11 years, then decided to stay away due to issues related to mental illness. There are varying opinions on publicly discussing mental disorders, but I’ve always preferred being completely open and this helps with finding others with similar struggles.
Over those years 11 I had some level of success but always knew something was missing. I knew how to solve problems and many times, naturally gravitated towards fairly optimal solutions. I didn’t, however, spend the time to do deep dives into the frameworks/languages. I don’t expect FCC to solve all my problems but from what I’ve heard and seen myself from the community, I know this will give me a much-needed boost.
I have no grand expectation, I just know there’s more to life than what I had resolved to for far too long. So thank you all and if you ever see me straying, or going along an errant path, CALL ME OUT, please.
PS. I’m new here, so hopefully, I’m doing this the right way
