003: Self-Taught Student Talks with Casey Bartholomew


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.

What you'll learn

  • Valuable tips for maximizing your periods of inactivity and downtime
  • Getting the most out of local community college/vocational web development courses
  • The unique perspective of a fellow web development student!

Key moments

  • 6:08: Casey recommends one of Udemy's most popular courses (I've been recommending it for months — there's a reason it's so popular!)
