Hi Everyone :)
I currently work as a film producer, and I started to study code during the quarantine and found myself completely fascinated with this world.
I still have a long way to go before I can call myself a developer, but I'm very determined and I expect to learn a lot from the community here on dev.to.
I'm doing all of my studying online (mainly on Codecademy PRO, and Udemy), and I plan to spend some months completely immersed in code to pursue a career in web development in the future.

Film producer to a Developer, that'll be an amazing journey.
Do you plan to write about your journey here on Dev?

Welcome :) I can totally feel you, I worked for 9 years in video and cinema, doing it all: grip, shooting, editing and eventually cinema mastering. After a transition time as a sysadmin now I'm happily hacking things together with Ruby (or perhaps breaking things apart) since two months.

Good luck!

Wow, Nicolò! How did that happen?
I'm glad to know that I'm not the only one making this change!

Thank you :))

I longed to get into development for a long time, so after quitting I used what I knew about Linux system administration and started from there. I tried to soak up everything I could learn from work and online like a sponge. What helped me the most was building a little web app based on a pain point found during my sysadmin role: ugly code, but it worked. At least I learnt what I shouldn't have done 😅 After that I aimed to a Junior developer position, and finally got it. It's never too late to be a junior, it matters your willingness to learn and adapt

Hey, Julia. Welcome to DEV!

I can relate to that, I dropped out of an Arts degree to pursue a career in web development and it worked quite well.

Let me know on Twitter if you need any help or tips 👋

Well check that out! We may or may not be able to help each other (you may be helping me more than I can help you. lol) I am not just a coder, but a graphic designer and video editor as well. Currently jack of all trades master of none. I'm becoming efficient at Javascript and all aspects of editing.

Hi there David!
Well, I'm in Brazil, but let me know if I can be of any help from abroad :)
Now, in regards to coding, you'll help me more than I help you. I still don't know anything about JS.

Welcome Julia! i also recently started learning to code and cant wait to be immersed in this. If you want some free good tools to learn code I recommend: Freecodecamp.org and Sololearn. I use both. They are good for starting with web dev and javascript. :)) lets coooode!
