How do I become a (good) web developer?

Though coding bootcamps train students from a variety of backgrounds, many of those students have in common the desperation to plunge headfirst into a challenging career and achieve a more comfortable standard of living. These students also have in common an exceptional tenacity to continue learning.

As a recent bootcamp graduate, I will discuss the multiple stigmas surrounding bootcamps (and their awkward socioeconomic role), their various implications, and finally my experience learning Drupal independently after completing my program. This analysis will support my ever evolving answer to the question, "What am I learning and why?"
