Why I Chose to Go to a Coding Bootcamp
Talent and luck might happen to you by chance, but learning is a skill and practice that anyone can accomplish with diligence. That being said, bootcamp was not easy. That's because, as it turns out, learning is not always easy. You’re always going to encounter a learning curve when you learn something new — it’s one of the requirements to actually learning! The frustrations and struggles that come with it are also a requirement. The learning curve doesn’t mean that you should quit — as long as you face the challenges and work through those frustrations, you will make progress. I chose to attend Codeup because I love being surrounded by people going in the same direction as me. We share the same goals despite our many failures and successes along the way. In bootcamp you're pushed harder than you would ever push yourself — barreling past the invisible limits that you place on yourself. In bootcamp you learn to rely on each other and be a part of a team.
