General programming and Web dev jobs.

I have almost completed the front-end cert and built the markdown previewer and the fcc leaderboard. I am working on the recipe box.

General programming and Web dev.

I am from Sweden.

I want to add my experience of getting a front developer job offer.

I gave a talk in a tech conference (though my topic was not very technical. I wanted to give it a try.)

After the conference, another speaker on the conference (CTO of one tech startup) contacted me via Linkedin. He had listened my talk and asked me if Iā€™m interested in a front end position in his company. We met several times to talk about position and my skills after that. I showed my code to the dev team and they gave me an offer.

This was a totally unexpected way to get a developer job offer. But it happened. I think exposing yourself in the community in your city like meet ups and conference is very important! :smiley:
