A step-by-step path to launch and grow your dev career

So, you're looking to break into the world of web development but you're struggling to actually make it happen.

How do you build a portfolio? Grow a network?

If every job requires experience, how do you ever land that first job?

There's so much out there, what the heck am I supposed to focus on?

The decision overwhelm, the imposter syndrome, the endless loop of submitting applications, never to hear anything.

It's all real, and it all sucks.

Let's end the cycle and get you that coveted first job so you can break into the world of web development.

 

Who is this for?

Anyone looking to start a new career in web development but struggling to actually make that happen.

We go over the essentials of getting a career started and making yourself attractive to employers, without needing any formal education or existing experience.

The main goal of this challenge is to get you past the initial state of decision overwhelm, where you desperately want to get your career started, but have no clear path forward, or have been trying and failing endlessly to land that coveted first job.

If you're stuck in the Catch 22 of wanting your first job but feeling like it's never going to happen, this free course is your first step and will provide a clear path forward.

Why is this free?

I would not be where I am today without the help of the web development community, both free and paid.

I think there is a large gap in the development education space between going at it completely alone and paying for an expensive boot camp or college.

This free course is my attempt at filling that gap, and for people that want more in-depth, personalized help, but can't afford to spend a fortune on a boot camp or college, I run a paid community for aspiring developers as well.

If enough people resonate with my teaching style and like my free stuff, then I can make a living by teaching aspiring developers how to grow awesome careers with my paid community. Win-win!
