CodingPhase | James Hagood Review
James HagoodShopify Developer

Pretty much my whole adult life was spent trafficking loads of drugs from the west coast to the southeast and during that time I ended up getting on Heroin so after years of jail and rehab, I finally got clean but it was hard to get a real job.

So I started learning web development and I spent about a year learning the MERN stack and as soon as I started looking for a job COVID hit. so I wasn’t sure what I was going to do because I bet every last dollar I had on learning how to be a developer (I didn’t even have running water at the time). So about that time I saw you on youtube talking about Shopify development and how COVID will help the growth of Shopify and I thought well that makes sense.

I signed up for codingpahse to learn Shopify development and I immediately started getting work on Upwork doing Shopify theme work and I did that for almost a year until a company I had done some work for (through upwork) asked if I wanted to work for them full-time. So I have been working for them doing Shopify theme and app development and BigCommerce theme work for the past 9 or 10 months.
