    Hi everyone, speaker here 👋😃

    Thanks a lot for watching, and feel free to ask me any questions here in the comments.

    Here are the slides, and as I mentioned in the talk, feel free to contribute with any improvement or additional tips and helpful advice:

    I’ve learned so much over the years, I’ve gone through most of freecodecamp, done all courses on codecademy even did the web dev course on teamtreehouse.

    I just can’t get to the point where I am job ready. I have zero confidence in my skills outside of following along with courses and given assignments. I can’t make anything from scratch. It’s my dream to become a programmer but I’ve tried for years now and I just can’t get past this huge roadblock, I don’t know what to do now.

    Thank you, for keep it my spirit to not stop to learn…

  5. In 2018 people are apparently still looking down on other people that learn to code… I guess those people will be surprised when their jobs have been taken over by a bot or AI
