The countdown has begun_

On the 4th of September I will start the intense 3-month Web Developer course – on CareerFoundry. All this started as an idea… and it has become reality so quickly! The German government pays for the fees in full (1500€) in order to help me get a job in tech. I will finish on November 28th. If all goes well, and if it is true what CF promises, I will be ready to take my first job in Web Dev after that! I am a lucky bastard!

var coding = “Awesome!”

I am just here because I want to say: CODING ROCKS!

I actually can’t believe this is really happening. Not even 2 months after deciding to start to learn HTML (and up until last friday I still had a full time job), here I am coding the s%*[ out of my editor.

I just created a function in javascript that assigns a random color to a circle and randomly shapes it to be a square when clicked. It doesn’t sound like a big deal, but the fact that I was able to find out how to do it all by myself without having done anything similar in JavaScript before – is a small miracle to me.

I really have to send a huge thanks to Rob Percival, whose course “The complete Web Developer Course 2.0” on Udemy has helped me not only to understand loops, functions and statements in JavaScript, but he has given me the ability and confidence to built stuff on my own.

On a little sidenote: I am very happy with my decision to become a full-time coding student/autodidact. For the moment I am using 100% of my time to do what I love.

What else could be better? I am really, really grateful.
