Got my first developer job!
For the past two weeks I’ve been working as a Frontend developer and I’d like to talk about how I got there since it might be helpful for someone.
I began by taking cs50 on EDx (https://www.edx.org/es/course/introduction-computer-science-harvardx-cs50x). This course is amazing because it´s inttoductory yet challenging, and I think it shows you the right aproach to programming.
On May I started freecodecamp’s frontend cert. and finished it in August. I realized that I learned the most in chellanges, thats why I think that it is very important to give your best when solving them. After getting the frontend dev. certificate I made my portfolio (https://manuelbasanta.github.io/), which is mostly challenges I made during FCC. Thats another reason to take your challenges very seriously!
React and Angular seem to be really important tools on the market so I started the data certificate right after that. If Quincy happens to read this I’d like to tell him that to have the data course complete would be really awsome and of course I also would like to say thanks, this is an increadible website.
I don’t have much else to say other than repeat what I said before: Solve the challenges as good as you can, it’s solving them when you learn the most.
Hope this was helpful, thanks!
