026: Self-Taught Student Talks with Kalalau Cantrell

I just love getting to know fellow students from diverse backgrounds, who taught themselves web development. This week's episode is a Self-Taught Student Talk with fellow self-taught web developer Kalalau Cantrell (or “Kal”, for short).

Kal entered the web development industry from a background in sound engineering, and teaching physics (!). I met him after reading his awesome article on the freeCodeCamp Medium publication, “From Sound Engineer to Software Engineer—Why I'm Learning to Code“.

In our conversation, Kal talks about his educational background in physics and sound engineering, the valuable skills he picked up along the way, and how he's leveraging his existing skills to power through his web development education.
