I don't know if sharing my story here is suitable or not but I really need to talk to someone.
I'm a self-taught programmer from Vietnam. As you all know, being a self-taught programmer isn't that easy, especially from where I'm living.
I'm starting out as a banker, after 5 years working fulltime there, I've left my job 5 months ago to pursue my dream to become a freelance web developer.
But recently, I usually have a feeling like I don't have the motivation, and I'm feeling lost. I feel lonely because I don't have any friend working in tech, also don't have a network of local developers, also because I'm an introvert. I doubt my ability and afraid whether or not I can pull it off, can I have a life I want as a developer. I don't know what I should do next?
It would be great if you could share with me some tips, your own experiences/stories, cohorts, groups, or anything would help.
Thanks so much!
