Spouse says no way to coding bootcamp :(

You guessed it... I have zero dev skills and want to be a SDE. I know this is no easy feat. I have nothing but respect and interest for engineering and quite frankly, intimidated, as I understand it’s a long road to becoming an even half way decent dev, however despite the uphill battle, my biggest hurdle right now is my Spouse.

We are 30. No kids. No burdens or responsibilities or extenuating circumstances making this a hasty decision, etc. I want to resign from current role, give a bootcamp a go- if I make it out alive, I’ll dedicate another year or so learning more and see what happens.

When my partner decided to pursue something outside her professional experience.... guess who was her #1 fan? I supported her when she went for it. In fact, I said, “go for it, you don’t know unless you try!” Why the hell can I not get that same pep talk!

Would you support your loved one if all your bases were covered? I.E. this would not effect our plans of a family, we’re fine financially, etc. it’s all A ok on the obvious.
