To boot, or not to boot?

Day 2 of my journal of the journey… I didn’t actually do any coding today b/c I worked on an application for admission to a course that is starting waaay closer to home, which means I don’t have to move, which means I can save tons of money.  Keeping my fingers crossed that I’ll be admitted.

I think anyone that is trying to teach themselves how to code has gone to Dr. Google’s colleague, Professor YouTube; while trying not to waste hours going thru videos of crap and people selling stuff I found quite a few vids that said going to a Bootcamp is a waste of money.  Almost all of them claim to have gone from zero to full stack DiCaprio by using forums like stack overflow I started asking myself if I should stick to teaching myself b/c why not? And I would save all that tuition money… After thinking about it and weighing the pros and cons I’m planning to enroll if  I get accepted.

What’s in a name?

Sooo… This is my first blog post–EVER.  And it’s also the first time I’m attempting to learn coding (or programming? or web development?) Once again, at a different time, for different reasons, I am a virgin.  The intent of this blog is to share what it’s like for me to learn what it takes to be a full stack developer.  Admittedly, blogging wasn’t even on my radar when I decided to take this on but, after asking Dr. Google what to do, it was suggested that blogging would be a good way to keep a journal and maintaining the site itself would be a good experience with web dev.  I’ll keep this 1st post short but my goal is to post at least 4x/ wk, keep it light, and hopefully connect with some new people along the way.
