A few years ago I faced career change, and with four kids and a family, the process of changing careers was quite daunting, as I had to find a way to gain practical knowledge while still supporting them. Last fall I stumbled upon the Deep Dive Coding Bootcamp through CNM, and after a bit if research, decided to give the January 2018 .NET Bootcamp a try, since it allowed for attendance in the evenings and on weekends. Having no experience in development was a cause of concern to myself, but my instructor, as well as the entire Deep Dive team, was very welcoming and encouraging. As a result of attending this Bootcamp, I gained insight into the world of developing, and was encouraged that it was something I could actually pursue. After graduation, I was able to land a summer internship with the State of NM, and on the tail end of that I was offered a full-time position with SAIC as a Junior Developer, with great benefits and a great new career direction for myself and my family. I am very grateful for the opportunity afforded through completion of this Bootcamp, and highly recommend it to anyone who is at a similar crossroads in their own career journey.
