How To Become a Self-taught Developer (Advice and Stories From Actual Self-taught Developers)

I invited 3 self-taught developers on to talk about their journeys of becoming professional developers and share advice on how you can follow the same path. At a time where opportunities are limited due to the pandemic, we need all options on the table more than ever. If you believe that the only way to become a professional developer is to invest in a college degree or coding bootcamp, why not listen to a few developers who carved out their own path?

Over a year ago, I created a brand new company (DONTHEDEVELOPER LLC) with a very ambitious goal. By the end of this year (2021), my goal is for my business, that helps junior developers get unstuck and get that first position, to become self-sustainable and allow me to do this full-time. If my content has helped you in any way and you'd like to help support me with this goal or get more involved with our community, please consider taking a look at some of the links below. Thank you so much to everyone who's believed in me and has helped support this venture. You're turning my dream into a reality!
