Hello...I am new to doing stuff like this but I figured that I would document my journey to help others that may be in a similar situation.
Let me start by setting the scene. I'm in my last year of Electrical Eng, Eng Management and Entrepreneurship degree and have worked internships in the electromechanical industry and power/telecom construction. However, much of my degree and my work experience left me feeling unfulfilled.
I grew up never knowing what I liked and felt lost as to where I wanted to go with my career until I did a hackathon with some friends and found my love for coding!
So here I am, in my last year, middle of a pandemic and looking to follow my passion and get into backend or software dev by the time I graduate in the summer.
Relevant work experience: None...unless Access Databases count lol
Coding Languages and Technologies: C...that I had a course in and have done some Arduino projects with
Determination: Through the roof!
If you are interested, my next post will lay out my plan of action and I would love to get your feedback.
NOTE: I have already started as of writing this so this isn't Day 1. Also, I work part time and am in full time school so I will be doing my best to keep up with my goal and try to keep 2-3 hours a day at minimum.
