Become a developer, why not?

This is what I said to myself a few years ago. In 2016 I was looking for a job. I already had more than a decade of experience and thought it would be easy to find a place. However after 6 months of applications with no success I realized that it was time to change something. I've always been good with computers but thought that software development is too hard, too boring or too [put any reason for me not to do it here]. Well after those 6 months I was ready to take the leap. I did a bit of research online and found CookSystems (my way in!). I did a 2 months coding bootcamp with them that was basically FREE and had all their support in finding my way into the field. If you have found yourself in a similar situation and think this is something that can work for you, check them out https://cooksys.com/programs/

Get familiar with Zoom

Zoom is providing a variety live virtual events interact virtually. I recommend live demo or Zoom 101 to start https://zoom.us/events.

With may interviews and jobs and social interaction moving online, we should practice now so we are prepared when we have to use it!
