If you are learning coding for the sole purpose of getting a job, have you considered other, less time consuming, more lucrative jobs or do you have tunnel vision?
I only ask this because I'm curious.
Why are you learning to code?

Yes, I have looked at other jobs. Went as far as getting a degree in electrical engineering.
In the end I decided to stick with software development because the monetary return is good (better than most jobs), and the return in mental stimulation is second to none.
I define total return as monetary return + mental stimulation/enjoyment, and cannot find a better job.
There are some jobs that get you marginally more money, but the sacrifice in enjoyment is just not worth it. Obviously YMMV.
