re: What's your coding origin story? VIEW POST


I'm self taught. I used to run a printing press for a manufacturing company, and was working too many hours and hating my job. So, with the support of my lovely wife, we sold our house, I quit, and I deep dove into programming. I did Udacity's Android Basics Nanodegree, and realized that starting a business doing consultation would be nearly impossible unless I could also develop for iOS. That prompted me to learn React Native. I used Stephen Grider's excellent React Native course to learn it. After that, started building apps and getting clients, building more apps. Ended up landing a job at where I currently work :)
