I did web development in junior high and high school, and I wanted to pick it back up again after
realizing I wasn't passionate about the the work I was doing after finishing college.
I moved to Austin, got a support job at a tech company, realized I still was interested in web development and, beyond that, software development. So I decided to enroll in The Coding Bootcamp at UT Austin to get there as quickly as I could while still building a strong foundation. So here I am, six months later, and I can not only talk about things like servers, APIs, route handling, models, pure functions, for loops, callback hell, but I also come across these things daily when I'm coding (well, hopefully not the callback hell).
