Hello Free Code Camp!
I’m Alex Cannon and I recently got a job as a
junior software engineer doing front-end development work. I thought I’d drop by and give my thanks to the supportive community and all the contributors to Free Code Camp. The work and support you provide impacts the lives of so many people across the world.
I completed the first 3 Free Code Camp certificates in 2017 and 2018. I also learned a lot on my own through personal projects, Chingu Voyage (which I highly recommend), and non-profit work for my local area. In total, it took about 2 1/2 years for me to get a job. I did take a 6 month break, so 2 years if you subtract that.
