Coding Bootcamp – About to finish… or, about to start!

I have had a busy time over the last five month trying to keep motivated not just to complete every single project the best I can, but to really understand what am I doing, time has fly and even though I am in the last weeks and about to complete the program, I am realizing that I am not about to finish but about to start.

About to start

… yes! About to start coding by myself without the support and instruction of my Instructors and TAs … about to start looking for a job position where I can apply what I have supposed to learn over this past months and the remaining of the time I will be in the bootcamp… just one more month that seems long as I feel physically (and mentally) tired … but at the same time it looks that is not enough time to start planning and completing my final project.

About to finish

Wow…

I can not believe how quick the time went and I feel panic of thinking that I need to be ready to start doing things by myself while the end of the bootcamp approaches. I know, that once the bootcamp finishes I will need to pick up my notes, clean up my code, re-read assignments and re-do some others, read topic related books and blogs, and look for additional resources to keep myself learning.

I am happy I decided to start this journey and I am happy I did not give up when I felt overwhelmed because I learned a new set of skills that allows me to create . And, I did it in the best time of my life.
