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. This young adult had a dream of moving back to the city he came from and working in a job that one paid better, and two didn’t leave him wondering what he was going to do with his life. Eventually, he decided to stop toying with the idea and start looking for opportunities and ways to achieve his goal and put himself into a career that flexed his mental muscles and had room for large-scale growth in the future. And then he found the answer, he was to be a programmer!
