Details about me:
- Mid 20s
- Just graduated with a commerce degree (specializing in accounting)
- Fluent or near fluent in Japanese
- Native English speaker, can also speak Chinese fluently (cannot read/write however)
- No related experience
I just graduated and was wondering if it’s realistic that I could succeed as a self taught developer in Japan. I did study 2 years of computer science in university but changed degrees because quite frankly, the theoretical math courses were too much for me at the time.
I have the option to take a work visa. Should I enlist in a bootcamp? Is there anything you would suggest for me to succeed and land my first job, or are things looking too unlikely for me as a developer? Should I focus on learning how to contribute to open source? Or would be better to start my own projects and design my web page?
