This is a fantastic article!

Even though my story is different from yours, I got into development through a series of false starts and various unrelated jobs. Now I'm teaching at a bootcamp (shoutout to General Assembly) and I love it.

College is great for a lot of people, but it wasn't for me, and I'm glad that bootcamps exist to fill that gap. I hope the trend continues and more people get access to new careers through less-traditional methods.

Programming is hard but rewarding. It's hard and it stays hard - going to work every day with that "growth mindset" and solving problems all day long is tiring. It's worth it though and I don't know what else I'd be doing.
