You go to a bootcamp, get a job at a Big-N company, start blogging a lot, publish some courses on Udemy (or Pluralsight if youre good), and then build some React library. You then start presenting about this library in all conferences like it's the shit. Eventually you start your own company and get acquired for $50 billion.

  1. Learn the basics of Javascript and Python.
  2. Post a lot about them (here's how you reverse an array in JS).
  3. Post top 5s every week (copying it from others, not that you know what you are talking about).
  4. Start a YouTube channel where you do exactly the same (don't forget the crazy titles and thumbnails with mouth-open faces and red arrows pointing things).
  5. If you run out of content to copy... wait, no, that won't happen. Keep posting the same thing again and again.
  6. Profit.
