|Long time lurker here. Just quit my job and thinking about how I should go about it.|
Background: I have a degree in business administration, so not stem related at all. I have some money on side to live on for a around a year (more if I move back to my home 3rd world country). I consider myself tech-savvy (running Ubuntu then fedora for the last 10 years, build my own desktop).
The goal: finding a REMOTE job in IT/software development as fast as possible. It does not have to pay much ($21k+ a year and I would sign), getting experience is the priority. Aiming for FAANG someday.
What I do know: Harvard CS50 10-15h a day. After that I will probably follow a Reddit thread suggesting CS61A/CS61B/CS61C from University of California, Berkeley. And finally Full Stack Open 2021 by University of Helsinki (gives certification).
As a hiring manager, would you hire me after all this if I have a mid-sized project matching your business?
Is there a database somewhere with a case study of digital startups? Wanting to create my own someday and that could really be handy.
Any advice would be appreciated, success or failure story also.
PS: If I have to go back to university, I will but prefer not to (cost is the real problem).
