Online learning wasn’t enough

Announcement Date: June 1, 2015

During the two years I was in part verification, I continuously put resumes out there, searching for another technical writing job, but I couldn’t find anything. I knew that just verifying parts was not a job with a future. For about a year I tried teaching myself Javascript using online courses like Udacity, Udemy, and Free Code Camp. They were very helpful, but I knew I couldn’t learn it on my own, even with the online support. I really needed a classroom setting. When I realized that WCCI was there locally, I jumped at the chance. I discovered We Can Code It in February 2016, quit my job, and joined the March cohort.
