Hi Folks, I'm 33 years old and almost 2 years have passed since I started getting into this game. I Started this for curiosity but suddenly this became more serious, so serious than I'm changing my career right now.
I had almost 10 years on chemical engineer field and worked in Germany before. Now that I came to my home country things are different and I felt the necessity to change my professional life.
Frontend world is getting crazy with so many things to learn. It's constantly changing and for folks like me, this is just madness.
In January I joined in a new concept of Digital school in Porto ( The New Digital School) where we learn a lot of Ux/Ui than development but its still good for the growth as a frontend development in my perspective.
Right now, we are starting approaching the industry in order to get out the first job in the tech world, and I'm super anxious, question everything, thinking if I'm capable but at the same time I feel that I need to get in and validate all I have learned.
I would like to know how was your experience and how you dealt with this, especially folks that have passed through all this career change process.
The software industry moves fast. But if you keep up, you can have an incredible career.
