Self-Taught Student Talks is a sub-series of the LVEC podcast, highlighting self-taught students’ accomplishments. This week, we meet Casey Bartholomew, a self-taught front-end web development student juggling full-time work while learning to code. We discuss what he’s learned so far, what tools he’s using, and where he plans to go.
