It’s not every-day that you start a new career. Especially one that will lead you into an apprenticeship, something which for years I had eyed as a route into employment for 16-year-olds.
As part of a three-week bootcamp, to get a cohort of 12 of us, interview-ready, and presentable to employers with a view to gaining employment, to study an apprenticeship, in a web development role.
What do I know now?
Most of my experience to date has been gained both from freeCodeCamp and some additional learning using SAMS Teach Yourself books.As it stands, I am familiar with HTML and CSS, and would be comfortable reading it; writing it, particularly semantically is something which I am hoping will develop greatly over the course of the bootcamp.
Other languages specifically relevant to this role are lacking. I have knowledge of JS, PHP and MySQL, and will be learning these over the coming weeks, both through online learning platforms freeCodeCamp and TeamTreehouse.
