My Life as a Coder – Week 2

By Dangermin Field

As the title of this blog indicates, this is about my life, challenges, wins and goals as a coder, which I’m thinking about changing to “Developer”. I wish I could write in here everyday but one challenge any new developer in a bootcamp like Origin Code Academy will learn, is that time is one of those challenges.

It’s just ending the near of week two and we’ve already covered so much ground.  I mean we have really jumped into the deep end and I’m treading water as hard as I can to grow the muscles I need to swim.

I went to my 1st meet-up last night after having a really hard day with AngularJS and I have to say it was really a great experience.  I spoke with a lot of people from all levels of experience and told them about my struggles and listened to their stories and words of advice.

One guy I talked to that went to bootcamp in Seattle and was astonished when I told him we were learning Angular on day 7, his school didn’t even touch it till week 12 (their last week). And another student from a local school that was on his last week (week 12) had never even heard of it.  This made me realize that by getting in deep now, I will have just that much longer to learn how to swim before I jump into the ocean of looking for work.

I’m proud that I shopped around and found the school that matched my learning style and needs.

To anyone out there thinking about going to a code bootcamp, I can’t emphasize enough to find one that fits.  It’s going to be long nights no matter where you choose, so make it worth it!
