I've read a lot of pros and cons to being a software engineer. The good things being:
- They make good money
- Some have the option of working remotely
- There's a high demand for software engineers
So, of course, I did my research and found ways to start my journey there. I felt and still feel that this is a journey I and anyone can embark. As long as patience, persistence and the drive to put in the work is there, I should be at a good start.
My question for any developers out there reading this is, what made you want to become what you are today? How did you prepare for your journey?
[ If possible, can anyone provide tips for learning how to use GitHub? I feel very weird and out of place having my work pushed there and not knowing exactly how to make use of it! ]
