What would tell someone considering a career change to software development?
First, I would say if this is something you want to do you have to go all in. These types of intensive programs work best for people who seriously invest their time and focus to get the most out of them. While it’s a very challenging learning experience, if you give it your all it’ll help you ten times over. Second, don’t forget to breathe! Make sure you’re taking breaks and getting a reasonable amount of sleep, and don’t neglect yourself, your family, significant other, pets, plants, etc., whatever it is that’s important to you in your life.
