I am struggling to become a Ruby, JS developer later in life. It's been harder than I thought to rearrange my life to make room for this change. Any one out there have any tips? I'd love to find a solid mentor.


@Hooper follow your interests and try to link your hobbies together, niches are often a good way to build experience in a field you know and sometimes also get traction from a dedicated user base.
Be patient.
Find a way to stay focused. Mine is the pomodoro technique, but whatever works for you.

@ngw Much thanks. Focus is the biggest challenge - I have a lot of things in life that I enjoy....so blocking things out and focusing is hard...thanks for the reminder!
