The Software Engineer FastTrack is described as a 24-week immersive part-time bootcamp. More about it here https://www.manchestercodes.com/
It's a kind of bootcamp that you can attend while still working fulltime, which I do - in a totally unrelated field.
I'm really tempted. I have a fair amount of amateur experience in various aspects of software development amassed over a few years. I love programming - always have done - and would love to give it a try professionally. The course pretty much ticks the boxes for me.
I'm looking to completely change direction in my career.
"So what?", I hear you say. "Loads of people have successfully done that!"
Thing is, I'm 54 years old. I will be 55 a few days after the course finishes next year.
So, my question to you ... the Dev Community ... is, will I be taken seriously?
Is it possible for somebody of my age to make the switch?
Do you know anybody who has?
How would you react to a junior developer who's old enough to be your dad?
In the brief time that I have been a part of this community I have learned that it is a supportive and welcoming one. If that weren't the case then I don't think I would even be contemplating this. But all things have their limits.
I'm really excited to press the enrol button!
At the same time I'm shitting my pants!
What should I do?
