Even if you decide not to hire me, I hope you decide to program every day! We will all need to be able to code in the future. Who know’s what you’ll achieve? I have learning difficulties (small working memory) and I got a first class degree! All you need to do is work hard and the great thing about hard work is that the more you do it the more a routine it becomes and the easier it gets! :)
