This is very encouraging to hear! How long did you study, and did you go to a bootcamp or learn on your on time?

I have about 10 years of programming experience, all self taught. But it was all in desktop work. I started studying web dev when I got laid off back in March.

So I didn't do a bootcamp or any formal training, but I wouldn't recommend it. So it took me about 5 months of backend studying and trying to get a dev job.
