feel the same hey bro mainly becuase I am working also and I need to code when im back fro about 5-7 hours daily which is not easy when you got a life and things going on but God will make a way bto
This line speaks a lot of volume to me as I feel exactly the same way. You definitely possess the trait of someone who goes after what they want and believe in. Overall, a really inspiring story with such a quick turnaround. Thanks a bunch and best of luck with your future career!
Thank you for sharing your experience with us, but kindly i need to ask you, how should i start learning, i didnt know how to start with freecodecamp
it looks more complicated for me
Congratulations on your transition!
(“In education, scaffolding refers to a variety of instructional techniques used to move students progressively toward stronger understanding and, ultimately, greater independence in the learning process.”)
You can start with Codecademy first, there is everything explained in simple way but very slowly. After you learn some basics on Codecademy you can get back here
All of this started one month ago, so I’m a couple of steps away from beginning my first projects, even if I submitted my portfolio on freeCodeCamp already.
Considering these facts, you can trust me when I say that your story inspired me a great deal. More than you can think.
Keep us posted, if you can (and want). I wish you all the best for the future!
Many congratulations on your success! I’m Irish myself (living in America), so this gives me hope of being able to relocate home someday. Good luck with the damp Irish winter, but enjoy the Christmas! The Irish Christmas is a lot of fun, and if your company is like most companies in Ireland/Europe, you’ll probably get ample time to visit your family either way.
Like others who have replied, my path is similar to yours. However, mine is even more similar than most in that I too have a Masters in Education (I agree with your scaffolding comment BTW, and I think Quincy and others are working hard to ensure that FCC Beta is scaffolded better than the current version).
Anyway, I was wondering how much of a part your education background played in helping you get this current position if any. Do you plan to use your coding skills in the field of education at some point? Also, what tips do you have regarding tweaking your LinkedIn profile to attract the interest that you did? I’ve been wondering about that for a long time.
Last question, I promise - did you include projects that you did from Colt’s course on GitHub, or was it all unique personal projects? I’ve always been on the fence as to whether I should include stuff I’ve done from following courses like that, which is a great course BTW.
Anyway, congratulations again! I’m sure you’re overwhelmed with moving, training, etc., so thanks for taking the time to fill us in on your story.
can you give me more information on the job? type of contract, duration, fulltime-parttime. How big is the company? Is the company an agency that does body rental or is it the final company in which you will work. Do you think the salary is adequate for living?
We’ve got a similar background then! I do actually think that all my experiences helped me BUT the educational science. I don’t really see any relevance of this master course in my current job…
My bachelor, on the other hand, shows that I have a little experience with computerscience (Information- and Communication science, where the computer part is more in the name than in the practice).
But my educational background was definitely a part of my motivation. I always wanted to change real world problems, and I feel that we can change a lot in schools. I for example would love to build apps for schools to innovate them. I am still having that in the back of my mind, to do this in the future.
On LinkedIn I put that I was very interested in developing websites and made it visible for recruiters (there’s an option in Linkedin: make my profile visible for recruiters). You can put it in your title too and add some recruiters to your network. From then, I got some messages from recruiters that asked me about my specific interests and experience. The recruiter that linked me to my currentjob found my resume on another webpage, which is called toplanguagejobs.
It is quit overwhelming but I luckily have some time to respond to all your questions.
I’m pretty sure that there are opportunities here in Ireland, with so many big IT companies here! Good luck!!
im sorry but I cant really answer all your questions in depth since I feel like this is very confidential information and my story already gives away a lot of personal information.
But I work fulltime at the moment at a big company. I dont want to share much more about it.
Congratulations! inspirational story
if you have time, a good way to learn is also to develop a simple project that you like, practice with codeschool or codecademy and code every day.
ok no worries. well the company is on your Linkedin profile anyway…
I wish you the best of luck. Take care and I hope your employer treats you well.
Thank you Soooo Much for sharing your amazing story. You won’t believe how much i am happy after reading your experience. i feel like a i still have chance to find a Job after i drooped from school to learn Programming. i Just bought the “the web developer boot-camp” you mentioned and i m willing to learn hard. Thank you so much again and i feel like if everything good happens to me in the future it’s because of you
This is so beautiful. Thank you so much! <3
so can anybody answer the questions she was asked in the interview? what would you say?
Wow amazing! It’s really hard to believe that you’ve made it, I am on my way too right now and this is very inspiring
