I’m writing today to thank the team at Codecademy and the many people that donated subscriptions to PRO during this pandemic. I was fortunate enough to get one of these PRO subscriptions and it has opened my life to so many opportunities I can’t thank this community and company enough.
About 3.5 months ago, I began my web development course path when I found out I was laid off from my Sales career in San Francisco. I really enjoyed solving all the course work and eventually, it came to a point where I could converse with my peers about coding. This led to a minor mentorship with a close friend who is a senior web developer. Next, were ideation meetings and through this whole process, I was able to find something I was passionate about; technology, entrepreneurship, and food.
I’m happy to say that today, we started our marketing campaign on Instagram, got users to the website, and successfully transacted orders. This is a great feeling, a small win. I know this path isn’t guaranteed but I know I have more tools in my belt to proceed forward.
