Self-taught programmer: is it good or bad?
This topic is close to me, since I also belong to the category of "self-taught."
As practice shows, you can be self-taught. 90% of companies are not interested in where you studied and whether you have a diploma, the main thing here is your skills, speed and desire to develop.
If you have a great desire, I believe that there is no need to attend an IT school or courses, since in any case 60-70% of the information goes to self-processing. And if so, then you can study on your own by watching video tutorials on the Internet, because there is enough information, and maybe even more and better than at school. If you are not sure whether you like it or not, I also advise you to watch a few video tutorials and try to write a couple of lines of code so as not to waste your time and money on a profession that is not particularly attractive.
Программист-самоучка: хорошо это или плохо?
Эта тема мне близка, так как я тоже отношусь к категории «самоучка».
Как показывает практика, ты можешь быть самоучкой. 90% компаний не интересуются тем, где ты учился и есть ли у тебя диплом, здесь главное - твои навыки, скорость и желание развиваться.
Если у тебя есть большое желание, я считаю, что нет необходимости посещать IТ-школу или курсы, поскольку в любом случае 60-70% информации идет на самообработку. А если так, то ты можешь учиться самостоятельно, просматривая видеоуроки в Интернете, потому что информации достаточно, а может, даже больше и лучше, чем в школе. Если ты не уверен, нравится тебе это или нет, я также советую посмотреть несколько видеоуроков и попытаться написать пару строк кода, чтобы не тратить свое время и деньги на профессию, которая не особенно привлекательна для тебя. •
💡 Are you guys always focused with your tasks on hand? Is it easy to complete your to do lists? I know there’s a market on CBD and stuff, and not to discredit it, but my solution to this is so simple. I put on a timer. I literally have an app called Be Focused. I set a timer for an hour and then it dings for me to take a 15min break. It works wonders. Instead of half ass doing a task cause I found another task within the first task (women am I right?) this lets me break it up. Take a coffee break and pick up where I left off. It sounds silly to have to use an app for a to do list but, fuck! Mine is long 😂
