This week we answer....
Devan Beitel asked: I am having a hard time trying to get into open-source contributions. I work as a developer for a healthcare insurance company and I can’t show any of my day-to-day work. I’m hacking away on side projects at night when I can, but it seems like it isn’t enough to build my reputation.
Ben Costanza asked: I chose to go the self-taught route. I didn’t like the idea of a bootcamp that seemed like a potential ‘ready made HR scheme’. but once things started to click I still struggled a lot with reaching out re: employment and reading job ads can be very demoralizing when they want “rock star” 5-10+ years in this long laundry list and far fewer advertised opportunities for jr people, which you seem to have to know someone to ‘get in’, could you shedding light on this?
Ryan Swapp asked: I seem to be able to figure out most things with a few google searches… most of my questions right now revolve around dev ops stuff and the best way to deploy/scale apps?
cbranch asked: I’ve built two, fairly robust, complicated apps, but they were both internal tools that I developed for my current company, so they completely own the codebase How would I share that experience with a prospective employer?
