Are you wondering how I did it? Keep reading. Once I decided to become a web developer, the rest became history.
As with most journeys, mines began on google. Eventually, I stumbled across Codecademy. Codecademy is an online interactive platform that offers free coding classes. Putting in 3-4 hours a day on Codecademy, I learned a lot. I became well versed in HTML and CSS, but I felt like it wasn’t enough.
I found myself falling into the “read-and-watch-a-bunch-of-stuff-about-web-development-and-get-excited-but-don’t-do-anything” category
As my rapid growth at Treehouse started slowing down, and my coders high began to wear off, I began to feel like I needed something more. So I starting looking into coding Bootcamps. After some deep research, I came across a coding Bootcamp in Miami called Wyncode. I read multiple reviews on Wyncode and decided to give it a shot. I took the Full-Stack 10 week Web Developer course.
After 6 months of training and practice, I can confidently call myself a full-stack web developer. Of Course, I plan to continue learning and growing my skills over the course of my career. Currently, I am working on launching a freelance web development agency. It’s a lot of work, but despite the hard work, I absolutely enjoy what I do and plan to continue doing it!
So there you have it. My story on how I became a full stack web developer in 6 months.
