The second on my list is Dennis lvy
Dennis Ivy was a marketer who learnt python for free on the job. He then sold the website that he built while learning to his employer for $40k. Today he runs a growing Youtube channel teaching others how to code as well. Dennis shares his story on learning programming, making $40k with one deal, his advice for newbies and what's coming up on his Youtube channel.
How he started his career in tech
He's a self taught developer who currently spends his time teaching full stack development on his Youtube channel. He wrote his first hello world program in sept 2017 and two months later he convinced his boss for him to rebuild his company's Laboratory management software. 2 years later he sold that software and now he's taking 6-12 months off to pursue his dream of teaching and building things that interest him.
The third on my list is chris sean
Chris sean came from a family of medics but found himself entirely unsure of what he wanted to do. He bounced around from job to job in an attempt at finding the right fit. Eventually, Chris found himself as an audiovisual executive assistant, but with limited future prospects. He needed a new direction that would allow him to control his own career and his future.
When Chris was first introduced to coding, he realized it would open up limitless new career opportunities, but best of all, it didn’t require a degree to excel. Instead, all he needed was to learn the necessary skills and have the determination to work hard.
Chris couldn’t afford his own computer, so he learned with Treehouse during his free time at work. After 3 months of dedication, Chris landed a junior developer position at a processing company. Less than a year after that, Chris became the main developer for the company. Since then, Chris has been able to work with a wide range of fantastic clients and even started his own YouTube Channel to share his life as a developer and help encourage other aspiring developers to take that first leap into code.
The fourth on my list is Gift Egwuenu
Gift Egwuenu is a front-end engineer and technical writer who is based in Lagos, Nigeria, and she is a front-end engineer at Passionate People. Contributing mostly to Vue and RubyGems, she is passionate about making the web accessible to everyone, and creating open and inclusive communities. She started a local Vue meetup chapter of Frontend Foxes for those who identify as women. She love open source as a medium for connecting with developers around the world. She never would have thought that right here from Lagos, Nigeria, she could communicate with so many people from so many different places. Open source itself is great, but the community is more important.
Personally, she can say that the community has improve her career. For example, she got to attend GitHub Universe in 2019 because a member of the open source community, Sarah Drasner, invited her. She never would have expected to attend all because she made the effort to actually engage with them. She was very happy and grateful for these relationship with the open source community.
Open source itself is great, but the community is more important. It’s not just about contributing to this project or that project. You actually get to be part of the community and interact with people.
