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.

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.
