Recently, I decided to commit to a skill path. I love technology and have been intending to become a creator of it for a while. So far, I have completed many courses on Team Tree House and it has been a great experience, however; it hasn't lead to much creation due to not having delved to a deep level of mastery. This online school is great and I will continue to use it, although I believe it is time to take it to the next level.
In order to learn a language, to the point of fluency, immersion is needed. High intensity of exposure is the best way. I have heard this from several reputable sources, like Tim Ferris for example. So after going to Meetups and perusing programming, I have decided on a starting platform, to immerse myself in. Enter iOS development at Code Fellows.
My commitment starts with $1500, for a month long class, called iOS Foundations II. Two nights a week, starting tomorrow, to prepare me for what will be the greatest academic challenge I have ever undertaken. Next, I take the plunge and leave my job, to learn full time, which is terrifying because it also costs $10,000.
This section is called the iOS Development Accelerator and to make sure there is no turning back, I have already put in notice with my current employer. There is a bright light at the end of this tunnel that I am launching myself down it. Code Fellows guarantees a job at the end with at least $60k a year in salary. When I get there, the money will be a bonus. The real reward is having a skill that I enjoy utilizing to conjure my dreams into reality. Wish me a little luck and a lot of perseverance!
