Hi everyone. I’m 37, currently a student in an online iOS bootcamp (3rd week) which has become disillusioning in its structure. I’m considering dropping it and doing something like TOP instead.
I earned a BS in psychology last year, which didn’t really lead to any desirable opportunities for me, primarily because I’m old and don’t want to wait another year to get into grad school just to earn less (after 4 more years) than I might at the end of just one year of studying coding. I’ve been a computer geek my whole life anyway, so this is probably a better fit in the first place. Most of my time spent on the computer hasn’t been coding, but I have had a tiny bit of experience with it in the past.
I live in Fairfax, Virginia. Currently in my parent’s basement, who are kind enough to support me as I prepare for a tech job. They expect me to be employed by the end of the year (and I expect that as well).
Nice to meet you!
