Getting Started

"You should never learn how to code in isolation" -Career Karma team

Welcome to Career Karma!

Learning how to code can be tricky.

Our goal is to help you discover YOUR shortest path to a software engineering job.

There are thousands of tutorials online and you have to figure out which one to take.

We will show you specific resources and tutorials your peers completed who became software engineers.

You might be learning to code alone or struggling to manage your time.

We'll connect you to your peers who will keep you accountable, help you manage your schedule and help you get unstuck.

How to use this guide:

This guide is organized into three phases each serving a different purpose. We encourage you to go through each phase in this particular order but you can skip a phase if you already know it.

Phase 1: Join a Community

Introduction to stories of people who came from non-traditional backgrounds and transitioned successfully into software engineering roles. This will help you discover and determine your own unique path.

Phase 2: Research Educational Programs

Introduce you to the skills you need to become a software engineer and how to acquire them. You will be exposed to numerous coding bootcamps; part-time, remote, financing options and complimentary prep courses.

Phase 3: Create Your Roadmap

By the end of this phase you will assemble all the puzzle pieces needed to create a roadmap. Now each hour or two a night can go towards getting to your destination.
