Someone I know just got a developer job

Someone I know just got a developer job


I wish this post would have been about me, but hopefully soon. :slight_smile:

So someone I’ve met on Facebook (never actually met in real life) via a group we’re both in, has recently found an Android app development job, with some full stack development involved. He had a portfolio of Android apps as well as a few websites, and what he said has helped him a lot was meetups.

I should also mention that he has no CS degree, and to the best of my knowledge, no degree whatsoever. He has just done a few courses, built some stuff, looked for a job, and found one. I myself have went to college for a 2 year program called “Practical Software Engineering”, and have thought that I’ll find a job once I graduate. It’s been over a year since I’ve graduated and haven’t found a job yet. I’ve later realized that especially because my certificate is not a degree, I better build a solid portfolio, which is why I’m here in the first place, and the guy’s Facebook post and some posts here have confirmed that this is the way to go.

I haven’t actually chatted with him in a while, but I just saw his post on the group about getting a job a few days ago, and I thought I’d share it with you guys so that it’ll hopefully motivate you.


Good stuff. I’m happy to hear that people are finding work.


Thanks, very inspiring!


Also, constantly think you can do it, you’ll get there!
