Being a self-taught programmer is not an easy journey, you will come across a lot of different challenges like, what field to choose, a lot of unanswered questions, uncertainty about what the future looks like for the field you pick, and trying to be consistent.

According to a developer survey “Lots of coders are self-taught”. The survey was completed by more than 50,000 developers from 178 countries.

There are a lot of Famous self-taught coders I am sure you have heard of. You must have heard about Jack Dorsey (Twitter), Mark Zuckerberg (Facebook), Kevin Systrom (Instagram) and many others.



It has been a week to the time I am writing this article since the Zuri training powered by ingressive4good started.

Zuri Training

It has been a great experience so far, got to meet some other students and mentors on the slack workspace, not only that, some games were conducted on there for like three days and the winners were given prizes (I could not participate due to schedule).

The Zuri training starts off with 3 days orientation, which are held on zoom and broadcasted live on YouTube due to the number of participants. The orientations introduce us to all the tracks available. This will help students who are not sure of the part to choose, and also the courses that will be offered.

It been a great experience so far and I look forward to continue this journey with Zuri.
