Choosing a Techdegree?
I am interested in doing a techdegree but I am unsure which one. I currently have a couple clients that I do some wordpress and design for. I have an associates degree in computer science(where I mainly worked with c++) and would love to get back into programming and web applications. Currently I freelance and would love to be able to become a designer/developer hybrid. I also have an interest in artificial intelligence as a hobby.
Seems like you'd benefit most from the Full Stack Techdegree? Seems like an awesome choice too!
Well if you're interested in AI then I think Full stack would come closer since it has database course etc. Java is definitely worth mentioning too!
About the expenses.. if you can afford it, you should. There's no better way to spend your money then to invest in ones knowledge.
If you cannot afford it, one approach could be pausing your subscription every other month and save up half of the amount for the next month. This way you'd also have a month in between to experiment with own projects and manifest what you learn.
I think the techdegree works best when you can do the projects immediately after completing the pre-reqs. If money is a concern, let me suggest using treehouse to learn and then freecodecamp for the projects.
