Thank you for sharing your story and advice, Katie! I also come from a marketing background and would love to learn more about your day to day. I completely agree that joining a community of like-minded people can make a difference in your journey to tech.

Takeaway #3, spot on. Make things.


I feel like I have the opposite problem of Takeaway #3.

All I ever did was learn how to build things (self-taught programmer), and while I am somewhat confident in making things work, I have little to no clue of how to solve certain algorithms and most definitely never did any whiteboarding exercises

The opposite is not actually a problem but solid foundational basic knowledge can help experts too.
