I ended up getting an interview at an agency for a junior role, and I brought in a project that I wrote with help from a tutorial. They asked me a basic question about how to add a column to the database and I couldn’t answer it. I knew at that moment I needed a change. I spoke with some developers at my job and my friends that were developers and the ones that had done bootcamps were saying it was the best decision they ever made. So starting this year, I had the chance to join a bootcamp and I decided to go for it. It really was the best decision for me and provided the structure I needed when learning. I worked with a team and developed awesome projects that I am proud of. Now, I am looking to work for a smaller team doing full stack development in web apps or mobile apps. I wrote a react native app for my capstone project, and was a lot of fun. I’m also interested in Ed tech because I like teaching people how to code.
