Hey everyone, I keep reading stories of people getting jobs “half way through FCC”, or “within a few months”, but those people seem to be in their 20s. Those that seem to be older, had an Engineering degree of some sorts somewhat related to computer science or “After many years” decided to get back into coding. There are also others who did coding for many years (like PHP) but didn’t know JS so they learned it here on FCC and got a job relatively quickly.
So, I guess I would like to hear (hopefully) stories of people who did NOT have an engineering degree, did NOT have coding experience, and yet were able to get a job.
P.S. Please, describe your experience in getting the job. How did you build your portfolio. Was it exclusively projects from FCC, did you use LinkedIn, gitHUb, etc. How long did you code (in a learning environment) before getting a job, etc, etc.
