Last year was fantastic. I started my own business, helped three startups get off the ground, learned a ton about working with distributed teams, and fell in love.
This year is even more exciting! I signed on with DevBootCamp where I'll help hundreds of people begin their programming journey! Talk about fun!
While I was initially leary of boot-camp style developer training DevBootCamp won me over. Not only do they teach practical programming skills they also teach:
- How to continue learning
- How to solve problems
- How to work as a team
DevBootCamp doesn't expect graduates to launch a startup or be a rails wizard at the end of their program. They make three promises:
- You'll know yourself enough to keep growing.
- You'll learn enough code to sweep the floor.
- You'll grow enough of a makers mindset to overcome difficult problems.
That's what makes a great beginner developer.
Not Rails. Not Node. Not Django. Not Spring.
Initiative, self-knowledge, humility, and enough experience to be useful.
