4 weeks of No CS Degree

Pete Codes @petecodes

So that's my first four weeks of No CS Degree - inspiring interviews with self-taught developers.

๐Ÿค‘ $250 in revenue -
โœ‰๏ธ 641 subscribers -
๐Ÿ“ˆ 61,000 page views - https://www.nocsdegree.comopen
๐Ÿ“ 11 interviews with self-taught devs -
๐Ÿ‘€ 916 Twitter followers -
โ˜•๏ธ 26 coffees bought -

Hopefully I can get some more sponsors in the following month. I've approached some of the big bootcamps about this but I'm open to adverts from indie makers as well.

I've improved the copy of the newsletter CTA at the bottom of posts and I have to edit the one in the header as well to improve conversions.

Some highlights - lots of great comments from people/ lots of developers have emailed asking to be interviewed/ was top of Hacker News when I launched ๐Ÿ˜Ž
