I will implement BEM in my next project
It sounds very professional
Kevin K. Lee
@kevinkiklee
one of the first fullstack apps i made had something like 5000 lines of css. it was insane.
yea, we used BEM at my previous job. it worked very well for us.
btw guys, i started from FCC like you guys about a year ago. now i'm a software engineer in NYC. keep going.
A-J Roos
@Asjas
@kevinkiklee Really? Wow that is awesome
Onome Sotu
@onomesotu
@kevinkiklee awesome stuff
Kevin K. Lee
@kevinkiklee
i did supplement my studies, but fcc is where i got started.
Onome Sotu
@onomesotu
@kevinkiklee All you learned was from FCC?
dinesh
@1532j0004kg
good night fellow mates..
Kevin K. Lee
@kevinkiklee
nope. what you learn from FCC will not get you a job.
Onome Sotu
@onomesotu
what did you supplement with?
Kevin K. Lee
@kevinkiklee
but FCC will get you started. and there is no better resource for starting then FCC.
i attended a coding bootcamp.
but coding bootcamp is def not the only way to get into the industry
Onome Sotu
@onomesotu
Yeah, in finland there's hardly any bootcamps
Kevin K. Lee
@kevinkiklee
what you guys all need is a portfolio project. make a full stack application from scratch.
Onome Sotu
@onomesotu
Good info... I am working on that
Kevin K. Lee
@kevinkiklee
go through this curriculum, and you will have a much better chance: https://github.com/P1xt/p1xt-guides/blob/master/job-ready.md

@kevinkiklee
heh, i kinda feel uncomfortable sharing, but i do want to show you guys an example:
that project got me multiple offers within a month.
A-J Roos
@Asjas
Holy crap that looks amazing..
Onome Sotu
@onomesotu
@kevinkiklee Holy shit!!
That looks like magic to me :)
A-J Roos
@Asjas
Yeah I myself still have a ways to go before I can do that :)
Onome Sotu
@onomesotu
You cloned slack!!!
Kevin K. Lee
@kevinkiklee
and make sure you write up good documentation afterward:

@leanjunio
@kevinkiklee is clutch with these suggestions :)

Yeah this is inspiring :fire:

@kevinkiklee
there are so many free resources online and many coding bootcamps. the market is becoming saturated a little. having a good portfolio is the most important thing to finding a job if you don't have a traditional CS background.
Lean Junio
@leanjunio
@kevinkiklee at what point in your coding journey were you able to replicate that project? Did you follow the curricilum that you posted and at the end of it you did that project?
Kevin K. Lee
@kevinkiklee
i went through app academy where the pace was extremely fast. so i had been coding for about 3 months or so when i wrote that.
maybe a little more. i started coding oct/nov last year. i wrote that in february.
Onome Sotu
@onomesotu
3 months after the bootcamp?
Kevin K. Lee
@kevinkiklee
no, 3 months after learning coding
Lean Junio
@leanjunio
wow, that sounds like a very intense bootcamp
Kevin K. Lee
@kevinkiklee
i know it sounds impossible, but it is absolutely 100% doable. i have seen hundreds of people do it.
Onome Sotu
@onomesotu
oh boy
@kevinkiklee you have just given me a smack up my butt to get my act together
Kevin K. Lee
@kevinkiklee
and, also, if you guys need proof, obviously you can check my github. you can easily see when i started coding, and when i wrote that project.
github is very very very important for this reason. it's your concrete proof of everything about yourself.
Onome Sotu
@onomesotu
Now I am saying this hear and now.. by the end of march next year, I will clone a fullstack app
Kevin K. Lee
@kevinkiklee
DO IT
