Awesome story thanks for the tips and inspiration


#22

Very inspiring story. Hope to join you in the field someday soon!


#23

I’d love to! Fantastic idea of a forum as well. I will congregate a few more resources that I remembered after writing this post also.


#24

Work hard and you will, I promise!


#25

Congrats on the new job! I agree, the Medium post may be helpful for a lot of people.


#26

Sorry for the delay on the medium post and resource reviews. Came down with a pretty nasty flu but expect it all to be up by the weekend. I spent last night listing more resources that I utilized :slight_smile:


#27

I have to disagree with that. The docs are extremelly outdated. I had to learn react to do a project at my job, and the docs are horrible.


#28

They actually just updated them to ES6!

Hi Always want to get a chance to show my appreciation to you.

For providing such a great platform to us and link each of us up.

In fact , our Guangzhou FCC site will start to held a coffee and code activity next Month and I am one of the helper.

Thanks again. Have a good day.

I’ve enjoyed reading your post. Interesting stuff.

Thanks for your kind words, Cherry! I am thrilled to hear that you’re helping other campers in Guangzhou. I have fond memories of Guangzhou (I lived there for a couple years) and hope to attend one of your events next time I’m in the area. Where do you all organize? On WeChat?

Colt Steele’s course is ‘amazing’ and I have nothing but nice things to say about that! Great read!


#33

Awesome - thanks for such a great post!


#34

Sorry about the absence, totally forgot to post it on the FCC medium. Got around to updating it :slight_smile:

@Munsterberg thanks for sharing that great story. please I want to ask: my english is good but still not perfect. is this a problem to make interview or to work remotely or even freelancing?


#36

I would say it depends on where you’re looking to work. If you’re planning to work remotely in the US or Canada, I would try to improve your english as much as possible. Where I worked we had in-house and remote devs, all the remote workers were native english speakers. Just remember it never hurts to apply to jobs, you gain a lot of experience and insight.


#37

thanks so much for your reply


#38

Thanks for sharing such a motivational story! Hope, one day I can share mine after getting my first developer job. And could you please give links for Stephen Grider’s react courses on Udemy?


#39

Check out the updated medium post! It has more resources and the links to each :slight_smile:

Thank you for sharing your experience. It is inspiring to read about someone breaking in and landing their first developer job. As a middle-aged career changer who fell into the tech field after years of unemployment during the Great Recession & then bouncing from one temp gig to the next with no real career direction, I am very hopeful that I have finally found my calling in programming. And reading about success stories like yours is motivating as I am on my journey. Thank you for sharing your learning tips too :slight_smile:
