How She Became a Full Stack JavaScript Developer In 5 Intensive Months

TaChyla Murray shares her story about completing an online coding boot camp which resulted in her becoming a JavaScript expert:

“Full stack JavaScript developers are coders that typically create web applications and are trained to work on both the front-end and back-end of an app. The job prospects for full stack developers is high; with many earning an average of $72,000 per year, according to Glassdoor, and the salary increases with experience. Here in Silicon Valley, full stack developers have been reported to make as much as $125,000 per year.

Black Enterprise caught up with Murray and she shared her experience during the Thinkful boot camp:

Tell me about the boot camp. What was your experience like?

I knew coding programs were a challenge, but the full stack program was H.A.R.D. in ways beyond learning the actual code. Learning about servers, and the ability to explain how data is requested and served was a challenge. There were so many times when I thought to myself ‘Whoa, I just built a full-stack application in a week!” It blew me away. The pace was fast and I had to prioritize my learning; sometimes sitting out on different events, which my family and friends didn’t always understand.””
