How I Learned to Code in 6 Months – And Got Into Google

If you’re wondering how to learn to code with zero experience, then my story will be enlightening. In May 2016, when I graduated from college, I had never written a line of code in my life. Roughly 6 months later, I got a job at Google as a Software Engineer. In this video, I dive into how exactly I learned to code in 6 months and then got into Google (what coding bootcamp I attended, what projects I did, etc.).

Here’s the video on how I landed my interviews at Google: https://youtu.be/GyYsnK434DM

    Not to belittle the hard work that you put in during the bootcamp and afterwards but, as a number of people have already pointed out, I think it's clear that you're quite gifted and have an impressive pedigree, which allowed you to land that job at Google. I've read that of the 3 million or so applications that Google receives every year, they accept around 0.2% of those candidates.

    For guys who are saying that he wrote HTML and CSS so he wrote his first line of code in college : HTML and CSS are not programming languages.

    The generation that put a man on the moon were NOT High School coders. Going out on a limb here, but home computers were not really a thing and most had Math backgrounds. So you were definitely in a good spot at graduation. When did 'starting in high school' become a thing? Or learning after college make you old? Or put you at a disadvantage? Age-ism. Sigh.

    That's really dope man……..not everyone loves everything at first touch. I didn't like math and grew to love it in college, but programming and design more. 😀

    A Math Degree & A Bootcamp lol Is what makes this possible. Great I have neither, but I am a Competitive Content Creator/Gamer. With html-css-a website and halfway through java/python. This was a good insight on the mindset you need to have. Good vid, 1v1 Code me bruh!

    Hello Clement. I did not realize you were a student at Fullstack Academy. Would you suggest your website before bootcamp or after to enhance one’s skills?

    Thank you

    I think if you have never taken math you would be cleaning tables in Mc Donalds !! sometimes it is about chances we have in life! how much did you pay to go Pens University? It is not good to pretend that you are smarter than you really are.

    Wow – I'm in the same spot you were in. I'm graduating from Cal in a month with a B.A in math and am looking to transition into software engineering.
    I came up with a plan myself, but because I'll be working full time – so attending a coding bootcamp is somewhat unrealistic for me. I was wondering if it's possible to learn code and get a job at Google, in such an impressively short time, WITHOUT attending a coding bootcamp? Instead, I'm planning on going through all of the UCB Comp Sci courses (around 12 of them) that a typical CS graduate would: watching the lectures, doing the readings, completing the hws, labs, and all of the projects.
    On top of the typical supplementary coding and interview practice resources you highlighted, do you think this would be sufficient preparation?
