Dedicating 1 year to learning programming full time, advice/tips/suggestions welcome!
I have an opportunity to live abroad rent free for one yesr to eighteen months (SO is being sent as an expat and company pays rent, gives money to live on, etc) so I am going to be leaving my current engineering job and pursuing coding. I don't want to do a course that costs a ton of money so am looking for suggestions on how to create a "DIY" scheme. I have been working full time as an engineer so I am not worried about holding myself to a schedule and would like to be doing 30-40 hrs/week (not necessarily 5 days x 8 hrs/day but will have aim to set up and follow a routine).
As general info, my current plan is to begin with front end stuff and after several months start trying to get small freelance gigs online to keep me in shape and maybe get some pocket money, then switch to a back-end language. I was doing Ruby before which I liked a lot, but any advice on the best backend oriented language to start with would be appreciated too. If it matters, I will be living in Kuala Lumpur. Thanks!
