How long do I study before…?

I’ve only been teaching myself how to code (Ruby) for a couple of months now. I have been trying to immerse myself in the culture by basting in podcasts like Code Newbie, Ruby Rogues, Remote Ruby, Command Line Heroes, and Compiler, amongst others. I know that I’m nowhere near employable at the moment, but I keep hearing folks say that they think they waited too long to start applying for jobs in the field.

How long does one wait? What sort of depth or breadth of knowledge does one need or want before you start to attempt to get a job?

Depends on what kind of job you're looking for. I'd say whenever you've got a few projects to show an employer and you've have some idea on how the interview process works (although it varies greatly) start attempting to get interviews for the role you want. There's not enough quality programmers so remember to show that you know how to learn and walk through problems logically. Honestly you never feel ready IMO, but you're ready when you start getting interviews and making it past the phone screens.

I made a full summary of what - in my opinion - (it worked for me and others who were following these steps as well) you should "know" / "have" when applying for a frontend role. Just a guidance - maybe this will help you as well.

Best of luck!
