How I thought myself to code
My curiosity was like nothing I’d experienced before. I just wanted to learn, learn and learn. I had a full-time job when I discovered this new world of programming. So I started to making plans. My plan was to leave for Asia for 6 months and learn how to code. I was singularly focused on this task. So after a few months of planning I left for Asia on the 14th of April 2015. I really had no idea what I was doing but it felt right, and that was the most important. Finally, I arrived in Chiang Mai.
Now it was time to start learning. So I found this place called Coffee Monster and spent on average 10 hours a day learning to code in the incredible language called Ruby. This is not what most people want to hear. But the reality is when you trying to learn something as difficult as a new programming language you need time and patient. I was so frustrated the first couple of days because I had no idea what I was doing. What had I left Sweden for? Am I doing the right thing? All these questions started to pop up and I didn’t have a great answer. But I kept at it. After a few weeks, I started to get the hang of simple ideas. I could actually see something on the screen. It was progress and that what I needed.
After five months of learning and launching a few websites, I actually got a job offer from a company in Sweden. So the first of February I started working with a ruby on rails team and it was incredible.
