I am in the New York City area with a background as a writer, blogger and journalist. In addition, I have taken collegiate online courses in Web Design and Development and Internet Marketing. So I'm well rounded, but not an expert at any one field.
So how realistic is it for me to study hard through Code Academy and Lynda, etc. and become a mobile app/web developer and land a solid job?
Is it a long shot, or is it something that is pretty likely if I dedicate the necessary time?
I need a career change .... bad!
