    Summary To reach out and connect with Alex, here's her LinkedIn profile: https://www.linkedin.com/in/alex-mamolo-2a1b57222/ In this episode, Trevor interviews Alex, who shares her journey from being a musician to transitioning into the tech industry. Alex talks about her background in music, playing drums in a band, and the challenges she faced in her musical career. She then discusses her experience working in data entry and her decision to pursue a career in technology. Alex explains how she discovered coding and her decision to join a coding bootcamp. She shares her struggles with understanding methods and functions and the support she received from her instructors. Alex emphasizes the importance of understanding the fundamentals of coding and how it has impacted her personal growth and progress. In this conversation, Alex discusses her experience in the coding bootcamp and the challenges she faced. She shares how she overcame those challenges and gained confidence in her coding abilities. The conversation also explores the difficulty curve in learning programming and the importance of perseverance. Alex talks about her job search process and the need for relentless follow-up. The conversation concludes with an invitation for listeners to connect with Alex and seek advice on their own coding journey. Takeaways Transitioning from a non-technical career to the tech industry is possible with the right support and guidance. Learning HTML and CSS is a great starting point for beginners in coding. Struggling with certain concepts is common in coding, and seeking help from instructors is crucial for overcoming challenges. Understanding the fundamentals of coding, such as methods and functions, is essential for building a strong foundation. Overcoming challenges in the bootcamp can lead to significant growth and improved coding skills. The difficulty curve in learning programming often means that the second half of the bootcamp is easier than the first half. Struggling on the job is different from struggling in the bootcamp, but both experiences can be valuable learning opportunities. Relentless follow-up in the job search process can significantly increase the chances of getting an interview. Revisiting assignments and focusing on mastering core skills can help improve coding abilities. Networking and interpersonal skills are just as important as coding skills in the job search process.
