Over the last couple of months, a decision has cristallized: In order to advance fast and be fully able to focus on my coding career, it seemed the smartest move to leave the fair island of Ireland and move to a rapidly evolving city: Berlin.
Even though I started studying online so I wouldn’t have to leave Ireland, I realized that for the moment, I have different needs. The housing situation as well as the job situation in Ireland is scarce. I am tired of renting rooms in private houses and never actually have my own place. I am tired of full time call center jobs. A change is necessary.
This decision is still mainly based on my development career. I am setting my goal to one year – after that I want to be fit for remote or freelancing jobs in web development, so I can continue to travel or go wherever I feel like going – for real.
My ferry leaves tomorrow!
My current progress: I am three quarters into my WordPress course at Skillcrush and I am currently enjoying to learn jQuery. Yesterday I also bought myself two new courses on Udemy:
- Professional Ruby on Rails Developer with Rails 5
- The Complete WordPress Website Business Course (to complement my Skillcrush course)
Now my schedule is set. I am going to learn Rails! Yay!
