I’ve been a coding bootcamp instructor for the past 4 years, and some of the questions that I’ve been asked concerning job opportunities and employment are:
- Will I get a job after this?
- How many projects do I need to complete in order to start interviewing?
- How should I prepare for technical interviews? What will I be asked?
Circumventing life issues to get employed!
The best way for junior developers to circumvent the issue of not having enough experience/projects and still get employed is to do plenty of coding exercises (including on old and newer ES features) without having done whole projects on them.
Often people have to balance multiple things while they learn to code including part-time jobs. Therefore, they’re on a time crunch and may or may not be able to commit to doing projects. I’ve faced this with students before. They have committed to learning to code but life just gets in the way.
There are also people who leave everything including employment in order to learn how to code. The more time they spend out of web-dev employment status means the more they dip into their savings and deplete their bank balances.
So this technical guide is focused on circumventing these issues in a practical and straightforward way.
Each section of each chapter has about 70 – 90 coding exercises + underlying theory. The basic premise is that you read a section, practice the coding exercises and then move on to the next section.
Therefore solidifying your base at each step. Moving you from basic to advanced concepts.
