How A Coding Bootcamp Changed My Life
Once upon a time, there was a young adult living and working as a construction laborer in a tiny town in the Australian outback, and quite frankly, he was miserable. He worked his ass off for days on end for a decent enough paycheck, but working is hard, hot and backbreaking conditions.
