When is all of my hard wagecuck work gonna pay off?

>be me
>3 years after graduating with a statistics degree from a decent school

>Leetcoding hard problems
>Constantly adding projects to my portfolio (currently working on a text sentiment API).
>Still not getting interviews because only have code-monkey experience
>Still making less than 40k as a code monkey while working 50hrs/week and studying in my spare time another 35 hrs/week.

The bar has been raised to the point where you need to be have an Ivy League CS degree and 3 FAANG internships to get a decent job after graduating.

The boomers complaining about "fizzbuzz" coding tests (and still getting the job) would be flipping hamburgers at a Mcdonald's today,

stop being a wagie fuck and make your own god damn product/software. sell subscriptions or just sell licenses. seriously there are tons of small issues many people would be find with spending a buck or two on online and if you can run enough ads you can make good sales. until you figure out your position in life isn't under someone else you're never going to have the nerve and balls to risk your livelyhood rn to try and make something better for your future self NOW. Didn't go to school. Dropped out after a month in. Made 60k freelancing in 6 months. Now its been 3 years and I make about 100k from my side businesses and anywhere between 300k-400k/year in crypto. Sorry you 'fell for the meme' but it was fucking serious. you just have to stop being a lazy fuck.

That's ultimately the plan.

From your experience, do you find it easier to start your own business (selling your own product) vs. being an employee (convincing someone else to hire you)?

selling a product. there are tons of different things you can sell/buy. Honestly if you get started through the selling route you also learn how to be a good sales person. This is an invaluable skill in life. You pretty much sell yourself to everyone in life. Friends, family, coworkers, potential partners.

Math PhD, got a job as a software engineer after 500+ applications. Holy fuck that shit was boring. Switched to a data scientist job.

>> No.22274819

>as a layman, how is this possible when all software is increasingly crappy junk?
It isn't necessarily the programmers but also the management

With Agile/Scrum methodologies meeting timelines is more important than building things correctly. This causes a lot of technical debt gets built up. Project managers however like to use scrum because it gets results on a short term basis which will allow them to get promoted away from a mess.

>But theres thousands of jobs at small companies for 60-100k for programmers. This guy is larping
Right I barely landed the one at a small company that pays under 50k. I got a 3% raise at my last performance review which is the cap without getting promoted.

The Boomer I interviewed with required a list of all of the CS courses I took in college since I didn't major in CS. He didn't have one either. I took 6 CS courses but decided on statistics because my university charges double for CS.

Boomer company owner doesn't understand tech.
Boomer company owner sees Apu will do the same job for $5 an hour.
Boomer company owner will get a company bonus if he can cut costs while maintaining growth.
Boomer company owner will golden parachute out after the short term gains and not give a fuck about the long term consequences.

See: Boeing, Intel, etc.

Don't bother trying to argue with people who literally can't look up basic statistics on the subject and use their own arrogant "I made it and so can you" anecdotes to make a point. If they truly were qualified for their positions, they'd know how to look this stuff up before embarrassing themselves online. Learn to code is a meme, STEM is a meme, the job market is a meme. Our jobs are all outsourced and the hiring team is filled with HR Stacies who think SQL is the name of a hair salon.

As someone who fell for the mechanical engineering boomer field meme, I'm looking for a bootcamp (mostly for the networking as I have autism and can't network on my own). Would any one recommend going into a front end web dev bootcamp vs a data science one? Specifically looking at Thinkful right now.

>> No.22276066

I'm in your exact shoes. Im working as a data analyst right now and was going to pivot to data science. I decided to go into Webdev due to the low cost of education compared to getting a master's in data science. I have a friend who had a ancient literature degree and makes 100k in Webdev as a project lead after three years. He went to a boot camp. He's giving me pointers and suggested just using code academy or any free source of info.

>> No.22276479

>code academy
I finished codeacademy's Python and C# courses in about a week. Going through their material felt like busywork. It gives you a very surface level understanding of the concepts. It's certainly not enough to pass a coding interview.

A good starting point I would say is Harvard's CS50 online course. It has a good mix of theory and application and the difficulty level is ok - not too hard but not too easy either. It's just a good introductory course into CS.

But again I've done all of this stuff and the only thing I have to show for it is a 40k wagecuck job. Maybe the bootcamp guy took the course at the right time?

If you're dead set on "learning2code" I'd start with the CS50 course.

Soon anon. Trust me, there are so many opportunities for you, you are perfectly positioned.

One thing you could do is try to make simple market making bots between exchanges. It's pretty easy to set up FIX api to send orders on Gemini and Coinbase for example, you could have a bot that just compares prices on both exchanges and does arbitrage when they are out of line for small (~$200) size

Obviously this is pretty easy so it's not often that things will get out of line, but it's good experience and you'll do a trade every so often. Very satisfying

I got into a good company with a few years experience. I went to a no name public school and got a 2.6 GPA so no good company would hire me. I ended up getting a job at this super small company that literally made wagie punch clocks. Did my time there for 2 years making jack shit ($62k). Did another 2 years at startup making jack shit ($80k). But once I got enough years everyone stopped caring about my GPA and I started getting interviews from all the top tech companies. Memorized all the whiteboard problems, aced the interviews, and had my pick of jobs that paid more than double what I was making. Now if I had a 3+ gpa from an ivy league school I could have skipped the 4 years of low wage code monkey hell, but you can still make it even if you didn't go to the best school or get the best grades.
