How did the 23 year-old English-majored Chinese graduate become a Web developer in 6 months?
June of 2016, Icyfish , a 23 year Chinese girl , graduated from her university, unlike her English major classmates, Icyfish selected a completed different way: Learn code! But that time she was totally zero-based in computer science. She said in her blog:”I tried to learn code when I was an undergraduate, as computer science is always been her hobby.”But she didn’t go any further when in school for lack of determination, after a half-year English related intern. She made her mind to learn web development all by herself.
Recent years in china, Web develop is becoming so popular, your can guess the reason: High salary. Compared to other majored graduates, you will get a salary almost twice to triple when just graduate. Just like 2 years ago ,the ios development market also faced the same situation.
Here is the resources she had used in the 6 months:
the ABC of Programming
5.Harvard CS 50 (2011)
6.Harvard CS 50 (2016)
(this part she didn’t learnt much)
I didn’t copy full of learning resources, but I think if you follow the path, you will find other resources naturally(like Dev Docs, test tools, mark down etc).
In the end , here is her blog , you may find other tools and resources there.
