I have a background in music and philosophy (never finished my degree).
Programming was never on the radar until I had the chance to acquire some "trade". It just happened that programming was available 🤷♂️
I was in my late 20s and didn't really have any prior experience before starting school. Took a 2-year college diploma which turned out to be fantastic.
5 years after graduating here I am! 😂
I am hearing more and more from those who have done the same. Studied something completely different and then upskilled later when they stumbled upon it or had to get to grips with it for work.
The image that tech is only for those who have been doing it since they were young is (hopefully) going away with a more inclusive environment for all.
Congratulations on your success and upcoming book. :)
