18 months ago I didnโ€™t know how to code, Iโ€™m now a self-taught programmer whoโ€™s made apps for the NBA, NHL, and schools like Purdue, Notre Dame, Alabama and Clemson. Iโ€™m now releasing my software under the MIT license for anyoneโ€™s use โ€” AMA!
Last year I was unemployed and miserable. Using this sub and resources, I’ve been full time employed for a year. I did it with all free resources. I wanna share with you how I did it. (IOS)
