Hey everyone! Thanks for watching and leaving the comments and questions here. I've read them all, and I re-watched the talk again now 2.5 years later.
You all left some great questions around things in the talk I didn't cover or could have explained better, so I made a video discussing all of those things in greater detail: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5azUw1Asp20
An important ste p is to realize wether you are one of those persons that just get hired right away, regardless of you qualifications. Do you inspire confidence in others? Do they trust you?
Devs in my team: why don't you dev, you'd be a great dev
Me: I like talking, troubleshooting & breaking your code
Websites ARE NOT dead, dude. They’re not. Why can’t people like you be careful of what you say?
Having a job in tech is pure discipline. If you’re not ready to keep learning then this field is NOT for you. Programming and designing are just two SMALL facets of thriving in this journey. Ready up. Smarten up.
A great presentation for a total newbie like myself, it can be overwhelming but you broke it down and gave me reassurance.
I realy wanna be a programmer I don't know anything about coding but I'm 16 but I will try to learn and work hard i realy like to stay home and stuff so this is why I realy wanna be programmar but I don't know what calculus means why is everything in life have to be so complicated
Thanks for sharing your knowledge, It's truly valuable!
PHP is Fine
This is all really good but how do I become an independent developer instead of an employee?
I agree with most*** things in this video EXCEPT for a backend language to start with so kindly, switch out Ruby for Python (Django backend). I'm sure he himself would agree his advisory of Ruby did not age well haha.
This was such a great lecture, my short attention span doesn't allow me to fully watch these things but his explanations and funny humour kept me engaged all the way through. I'm an aspiring developer who faces imposter syndrome every single time I do it. I watch things like these to help me in anyway possible, genuinely loved this
I mean I like the chocolate chip pancakes.

Back for a second comment after finishing the talk, and just wanted to say thank you to John. Great talk!
Thanks for this video, it really gives motivation especially on fighting imposter syndrome (illustration) due to some countries (like mine) have double standards on becoming developer. I am too a CS and former General IT (sysadmin) but decided to focus more on dev (.net/unity) or dbms (sql). It's really frustrating but this vid enlightens me. Thankfully, I didn't continue learning Php. 😂👍
Determination, yess determination!
I was determined to code for atleast 5 years but I lacked the path and I got it now. Many thanks John!
,,,, I need an expert trader that I can invest with in crypto company with a winning system . I really feel left aside hearing and seeing several testimonies from people on profits they make from Cryptocurrency,Bitcoin, and Binance investment.
finally!!! English!!! actually understandable English a.k.a non-asian smh!!!
Just watched the video right… hehehe.. Thanks for the talk, I have learned something(s) after watching this video
No one has lost their way yet,
Erm ruby is dying only banks use them, and as soon as they switch ppl who only use ruby would be fked heavy
This was an amazing talk that I believe is going to help me in my programming career. Thanks for the insight!
Good talk, thanks for sharing

I want to learn blender but I'm looking for a laptop that I can buy at a good price. To your knowledge, do you know of any laptops that can animate and render blender for about $550, to $650? And will I need a webcam or camera to do video's as well?
love this lecture so much and i am very motivated.
You lost me @ Trump 🤣🤣🤣
Well to me codeing is it’s own art from video games would not exist without code and video games are also art. Meaning programming itself is art. It’s like writing
This was wholesome thanks for this lesson, I don't know if this can get a reply. I wanna be a full stack developer,
System requirements. A lot of things am still not sure of, paid for some Udemy courses and still having doubts… after learning HTML for a month, I felt like it wasn't necessary, So I was wondering, if I wanna be a full stack developer, what languages are required??
I love the don't learn PHP followed by no reasons no arguments.
