Heya! I completed the first 3 sections, then I proceeded following Brad’s course and building a bunch of personal projects. I only got the 2nd certificate (Js) because one evening I felt like doing some algos. :slightly_smiling_face:

Thanks everyone for the kind comments, I really appreciate them.

Wow amazing story. I want to ask,how hard will it be for me to land a developer job in Germany?I have a bachelors degree in electronics from India. How should I build my portfolio? I am specializing in JavaScript and related frameworks and libraries.

Honestly I have no idea, but questions like yours get asked from time to time by fellow indians on r/cscareerquestionsEU – check the replies in this thread for example, or ask away yourself. Since you happen to have a degree in electronics I’d focus on embedded sw if I were you, afaik Germany has a lot of job opportunities in this field. Good luck!

I was using Duolingo and a couple of grammar books, so all self-taught as usual. The main sprint was during my “vacation” days in August, which I spent home studying it non-stop. It was quite easy for me to get the gist of it since all romance languages are very close.
