I’m Tim, 33 year old single dad making a career change into development. I’ve been studying coding for a while now, and over the last year I’ve been deep diving into learning all I can about the front end. I love helping anyone I can with the things I’ve learned so far, and I’m currently trying to land my first coding job! I’ve been a lurker on DEV for a while now, but I’m trying to actively engage more with the community :)

I’ve applied to a few places, but only really started sending out resumes this last week, so it’s still early days. I know the general consensus is to start applying a little before you think you’re actually ready, so that’s what I’m doing. I feel like I have a strong grasp of the basics, I’ve built a few projects, and I try to practice as much as possible.

Hey all! I'm Nick and I'm self-learning to be a fullstack web developer. I took the risk and let my current job know that I am ending my time with them at the end of this year and I'm terrified. I felt like I was on pace and retaining what I've been learning but recently, I've hit a little bit of a brick wall. I somehow landed a fullstack developer internship (which feels like it's massively exposing what I don't know), I took a test on triplebyte.com to assess to start applying for jobs on there (which... I did really bad on), I decided to return to some basic, simple projects (and feel like I've forgotten everything) and I'm nervous that I won't find something by the end of the year.

I saw a great article about finding community at dev.to and thought I'd throw out where I currently am in my journey to become a developer. Anyone in the same boat? Anyone help anyone that's in this boat!? Would love some help ^_^" haha.

Looking forward to leaning into this community more and learning from people's experience and insight!
