Welcome to Beyond the Bootcamp!
I'm super excited you've subscribed!
Before we start, a couple of housekeeping items:
A second to introduce myself
My name is Justin Harjanto and I’ll be running the show. I’ve been programming for 8 years (4 years professionally) and I love teaching! Back when I worked at Redfin, I used to host weekly fireside chats to groups of bootcamp graduates going over computer science fundamentals. These talks gave them a solid foundation to tackle technically challenging problems. Every single person that attended thought it was a good use of their time and the magic behind the curtain of computer science had been lifted!
This newsletter will always be free, I promise
You’ll never have to worry about picking up the tab because there isn’t one! The goal of this newsletter is to reach as many folks that want to fill in the gaps in their understanding. Whether you’re an aspiring self taught developer or an experienced bootcamp grad, I promise that you’ll be getting quality free content.
Learning the fundamentals can be daunting
But not to fear, I’ll be there every step of the way. These emails are meant to provide informative, short, digestible bits of information so that you’re (hopefully) not overwhelmed with content.
I also want this newsletter to be dynamic. By keeping the emails short, you’ll be able to let me know if something didn’t make sense or if you need examples to make a concept concrete.
In fact, I’ve gone ahead and created a Discord server if you want to give feedback, discuss the newsletter further, or just chat with me :).

Thanks all! I’ve taken enough of your time, so we’ll start tomorrow.
