I am new to FCC and I love how everyone helps out one another here!
I am 37 years old and I have been in the sales for about 14 years. I would like to make a transition into tech. I would like to get into Machine Learning, but I am not really good at math, however, I am willing to work hard. I will have a CS degree in about 1 year, but I need a job now to pay the bills.
Right now I am struggling financially and in desperate need of a game plan & guidance that will help me land a developer job.
Here are some questions I think about everyday
If I want to get into ML which field should I start in that will help me transition? Should I start with software engineering, back end dev, etc?
What should be my roadmap and which courses should I take to get a job a a developer ? What is the quickest way possible for someone with no experience?
In order to be competitive, do I need to learn front end and back end? I am not too interested in front end, but if needed I will learn JS, HTML and CSS. Where should I start on FCC?
I live in the SF Bay Area and it is very competitive market here. For software engineering & ML roles in some cases have over thousand applicants on LinkedIn and Angel.co. How do I compete with that?
Many positions require 3+ years experience and junior level are also very competitive? How do I overcome this?
