FULL DISCUSSION
 

Helen,

First and foremost, Congratulations on making it into The School of Code!

I have dabbled with coding since 1994. By 1998, I had 6 websites I created and maintained. At the time I really, wanted to get into IT but, you either went to college and paid alot(usually for outdated info)or try for a Microsoft Certification(depending on what certification(s) you went for, it may have been pricey as well).

There were no coding bootcamps or websites that help you learn coding. So, out of disgust and frustration I stopped coding websites and pursuing a career in IT.

Fast forward to 2019. I had a friend who sent me a link about a company in my area who were testing people to become apart of an IT company. Long story short, I didn't make it in but got referred to an app for coding. While in there, I found a jem of a website. It's called freeCodeCamp.org . I have been learning coding ever since and yes for free. It has a full fledged Full Stack Developer curriculum, with certification. Worth checking out, I'm glad I did.

 

Thanks v much! I've heard a lot of good things about freecodecamp. I'm making my way through codecademy at the moment but i'd like to take a look at that.
