I’ve completed the self-paced Online Software Engineering bootcamp with Flatiron School and through that year I was able to gain a “tech family” and grow as a developer.
My background is in the art market and it was not easy for me to get into the dev world. I was a new mum and had to take care of my daughter too. My time was limited and I got quite often long periods of baby sickness, lots of until late study nights and “I am not going to get this” tears but I finally graduated! Flatiron School was helping me through my journey with their technical help, ask a question feature and lessons.
I started to look for a job in January and 5 weeks later I’ve accepted an amazing job offer. During those weeks I was doing tons of code challenges, lots of interviews and getting rejections almost every week. But I had Emma helping me! She was my career coach. She was helping me with my emotions, with my interview skills, and giving me good advice. THANK YOU Emma!
I am not sure that this blog post is going to comply with Flatiron requirements of a one technical blog post but I can treat it as an algorithm to become a developer:
- Make sure your passion is coding.
- Enroll at Flatiron.
- Study, be curious, share your knowledge, have fun with side projects too.
- Land your dream job as a dev and start an amazing new career!
