Beginning to learn code. In my 30's


#1

Hi. I am from Canada. In my 30’s, beginning to learn code. Have a full time job in different industry. Would be learning to code on weekends. I am into it thinking it would be long journey to teach myself enough to get employable in web development. I am just going to patient, persistent. Thanks to THE ODIN PROJECT for such a beautiful platform.

You’re not alone! I’m just 30, trying to retrain after an extended period of uncertainty. We both got this!


#3

Same here! I’ve been thinking about career switch and a restart for a while. Coding has been in my mind for more than a month now.
Hope this works.
We have to make this work!

Glad to see I’m not alone - is it too early to have a midlife crisis?! I’ve never been interested in tech before, in fact my husband works as an IT and I had been more than happy to let him handle anything computer related. Now, I’m taking charge and excited to learn coding :smile: Good Luck!!!

This sounds great! I wish you the best of luck. I would encourage you, however, to consider putting more time than just on the weekends, if possible. Working through the Web Development 101 course myself, I find, given that I truly focus on taking the time to fully understand each concept, read everything in full, and take comprehensive notes, that this is taking much longer than I expected. I’m pretty tech savvy, so it isn’t that the concepts are touch to understand, there’s just a lot of them to take in. I feel that if I was relegated to weekends only, I would really struggle to retain the information and make any headway.

Hi everyone! I’m from Brazil and, as like you, I’m 33. Just the beginning!
