5A real story
By Cynthie A. Thomas
I liked that Chris shared his decision process during his journey. He also shared fears, trepidation and mistakes along the way. It helped me to really think about my purpose and motivation for wanting to become a developer. I found this book by watching his YouTube videos which are great resources for discovering if coding is the right path for you.
