I think that is a great idea and it is not out of the ordinary because many devs including myself are self-taught and I honestly think programming isn't something that anyone can teach you because it takes hands-on practice and you won't learn it from reading or watching tutorial videos alone. I hope for your success.

I highly value education and self-education is probably its truest form. Learning brings purpose to life and makes for depth of meaning. What are your plans for your future as a developer? Do you have a roadmap? Where are you going to end up and how will you get there?

My plans have always been centered on education and community. I wanna become a front-end developer because I have a best friend who's back-end developer, and also my personality and what I like it's more focused on the front-end.

My master plan is to create my startup, I tried once when I was 21 and it was an incredible experience but without knowledge of wtf to do, so my startup died.

I wanna learn to code, start creating projects with companies, get a job for 2-3 years till I feel ready in all senses to start again.

I wanna create content in Spanish about programming, and educational company based only on mentoring, like a personal trainer but with code.

I like the idea of Silicon Valley, but I see myself here, in my lovely Mexico, traveling a lot to conferences and making my company global in different languages, I know english it's global, I'm part of this community because of something, but to give the opportunity to people who doesn't have the chance to study english or they just don't wanna learn in english, there must be options. This is a plan of at least 10 years, starting a week ago, I'm taking my chance and climb to the top.

That is a great cause to champion and a well thought out course of action.
