It's more about acquired knowledge and skills than your IQ. We can teach you the skills that you will need to pass your interview, but you need to stay motivated to find the experience.

There are a few general topics with related specifics.

Dev Basics: Git, terminal commands, github, heroku, AWS, deployment

An additional frontend framework: React

You're right. But if you want to change in a dramatic way you have to do something different. We can help you through the process. Let’s start coding together.
