"You can hear me talk about my journey to become a web developer, how I'm working on a career change, and what you need to know to interview at Google." [1]

"This is my multi-month study plan for going from web developer (self-taught, no CS degree) to Google software engineer." [2]

The author presents two conflicting pieces of information. In [1], it seems like he has accomplished this goal of being hired. In [2], he is working towards it and has not clue if anything presented will work.

Even a cursory glance at the blog shows that this is his attempt to journal his journey...nothing more. You are splitting hairs.

After poking around a bit more, I see why I incorrectly came to that conclusion. Visiting the About page [1] provides this quote: "I'm publishing this blog to chronicle my long journey to becoming a Google engineer."

Without reading this quote, each post makes it seem like he knows everything about how to get hired. With the quote, each post reads very differently.
