Teacher Feature: Dylan Israel
Published on December 06, 2020
Did you ever wonder if it was possible to teach yourself how to code and then land a six-figure job?
Dylan Israel accomplished this within five years.
When I first considered learning how to code, I did not personally know any web developers. Also, no one else that I knew was interested in learning how to become one. So I started a self-taught coding journey on my own.
I researched colleges, boot camps, and online coding schools. For me, the most viable option was an online course.
After deciding on what learning direction to take, I looked into the certifications offered online. However, I wasn't sure if a web developer certification was worth attaining.
Then, I came across this video. It inspired me to start learning and to earn the Free Code Camp Responsive Web Design certification.
Since then, I've been following Dylan's YouTube channel Coding Tutorials 360. I find it to be educating, informative, and entertaining.
Self-Taught or Not Podcast
I've learned so much about the programming industry from the Self-Taught or Not podcast.
Since I am a self-taught programmer and currently not employed as a developer, this program gives me great insight into the industry.
It is great to hear the perspective of both a self-taught developer and a traditionally trained developer on a broad range of topics covered in the podcast.
I've listened to both seasons that they released, and I am looking forward to the upcoming third season.
Recently, Amazon hired Dylan, offering him a six-figure salary. It is awe-inspiring.
Since Dylan is self-taught, it shows what is possible for other aspiring self-taught developers.
Dylan has courses available on Scrimba, Thinkster, SkillShare, & Udemy.
Dylan's latest course is a festive one, and there is still time to get in on the fun!

Dylan is an excellent teacher. You can learn a lot from him, and he continues to be an inspiration for myself and many other aspiring web developers.
