Learning to be a Web Developer

A few months ago, I decided that I really wanted to learn to be a web developer. I was getting bored just running my site, was contemplating jobs but only found a few that interested me (which I didn’t get) and instead decided to go full into becoming a web developer.

I had some experience with websites having managed/owned a site for the better part of 5 years. But I had never gone full bore into learning the different languages intricately. I started out with CodeAcademy.com, then moved to CodeSchool.com and then to some great courses at Udemy.

At the beginning, when I first decided I wanted to be a web developer, I applied to DevBootcamp. This is a web development learning accelerator. It’s basically a 9 week intensive language course that focuses on Ruby as well as touching on front end development languages like html, css, javascript, jquery and ajax. After 9 weeks, they say that you will be ready to begin your career as a web developer.

Last week I had an interview with one of the higher-ups at DevBootcamp. Apparently I passed their interview process because a few hours after the interview, I received an email saying that I was into the program. After a few sleepless nights, I have decided to attend the school. (The cost, location and huge life change were keeping me up at night.)

The school starts on March 10th, 2014. So in the meantime, I have a few months to continue my self education. I have just signed up for a school called Thinkful. It’s $300 per month and teaches beginners html, css, javascript, jquery and ajax.

I will be posting some of my projects from that class to this website so that everyone can keep track of my progress.
