    I am 20 years old and am aspiring to become a web developer. For background, I went to college for 2 years, but ended up dropping out after I found out that my CS degree didn’t touch anything related to front-end development. I thought about transferring to a different University, but after some researching, I found that a CS degree is not neccessary for web-development. Since then, I have been self-teaching myself through TeamTreeHouse. I have learned HTML and CSS so far, and am now building my first static website. The thing is, I am not sure how to proceed from this? I struggle and I get stuck a lot. It gets really demotivating. If I go on StackOverflow they’re only going to give me the middle finger anyways. I don’t know what to do at this point. Am I just bound to fail? I often hear that while its totally possible to get a job through the self-taught route, the percentage of people actually succeeding is super small. Should I give up and go back to school to finish my 2 years? Or should I try a bootcamp? Please give me your advices. I have no guidance where to go from here.. I feel like I’m running out of time. – by hq overview -Sleepyy- – –
