Thank you Ahmad! What helped you to stay motivated on the self-taught track with being in school and such?

 

The very nature of coding and digging deep into data structures and algorithms.
I love problem solving but I faced many pits of despair where I asked myself why I'm doing this. And to be honest I asked myself where to go because there were many languages and choosing the right one was hard. Now I know that those 2 years learning the basics would pay off because I can start any new language or framework with ease, and still try to learn more and dig more. That's my motivation

That's great Ahmad! I feel I have the same approach with problem solving even if it requires taking a step back. Much like yourself I've found that learning the fundamentals of a language seems to help with learning other languages. For example, I've dabbled just a little in JavaScript and I've found that learning to basics of Python helped a lot in understand different JS concepts.
