Nice advice - from guy who went from being a blacksmith to being a dev earning 70k in 9 months

My main take away from that article was ... he put in 800+ of hours into learning Ruby on Rails and in return got an 70k job.
Oh, man. I want to do what he did. But, to be fair, the blacksmith job sounds kind of cool too. ;-)

I agree with that. I did my first lesson on here on April 1 this year, 6 months later and I'm earning a couple of grand a month,working for myself, building 2 or 3 of my own sites and signing up new clients weekly.
Did you start from zero?
Hands up if you just looked up those books on Amazon.
But honestly, very inspiring. Everyone participating in this thread should set a reminder to come back here in 9 months and report our success stories.

@Matthew Campbell I'd be interested in seeing your portfolio and share your success story in how you landed clients etc.
