I'm self-studying to become a developer, and I've been watching a lot of Youtubers proclaim that they were self-taught and that through a lot of discipline and hard work, it all "paid off" in the end. They got to their goal of landing a job, and if they can do it, so can you. I've ALSO watched videos about how to make money as a web developer, and teaching is always on that list. While I'm sure it's true that teaching to code is lucrative, and every discipline is in need of people who can teach others, I'm starting to get the feeling that some people are thriving on teaching the bare-bone beginner basics of coding to the masses without having a lot of experience themselves, possibly not ever even having a legit programming job. These "teachers" often don't mention their first job experiences at all.
Any thoughts about this?
