How To Learn To Code When You Have No Time And No Money talk

It seems like the "code newbie to full time job in 3 months" stories are everywhere. But for Colleen, the reality of being a military spouse and parent of three with very little time and money meant that learning how to code was a slower and more challenging process than those three-month success stories suggest. She shares how she went from code newbie to freelance developer, and the three-step process she developed along the way. If you're balancing full-time jobs, bills, and families, and you're learning to code with limited resources, this is the story of patience and persistence that'll encourage you on your own journey.
