I am starting in my journey to learning rails. I am pretty computer savvy but programming has always been something that I wish I knew, but never gave any actual effort into trying.
I have changed that mindset. My goal is to work a minimum of one hour per day (about a week in right now). I am a father and work full-time at a decent paying job, but I want a career change to the industry of developing as I love computers and I think I will be much more fulfilled.
I'm wondering at about how long it would take someone to have sufficient knowledge to be able to apply for jobs if I code one hour a day, 6 days a week (Id like to everyday, but life comes up so Ill conservatively say 6 days/week). Do you think about a year? 6 months? More than a year?
I'm aware there are a ton of variables, but I just want a rough estimate to give myself some confidence and a basic timeframe for all the hard work I will be putting in.
