Where to host projects

Talking early career; landing the first job

  • LinkedIn is a good resource, but you may have to closely tweak what you list so you're "caught" in the queries recruiters throw at it.
  • example, someone mentioned changing their profile from "6mo React" to "1yr React" produced a lot more interest

"I have an endpoint that returns a JSON collection of 'exercises'. How can I display it as a web page?"

  • React

Getting started/early career

  • Chandler Baskins spoke on "Angular Air" about lowering the barrier of entry https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rBvpwE7tbGU
  • Ideas for how to get started?
    • think about how you learn; visual?
    • https://www.udemy.com/ worked for Chandler
    • Video can be misleading. You may think you are retaining more information than you actually are. Generally you may only take away 15% of what you see.
    • Maybe don't try to work along as you watch, but instead watch and then apply concepts on your own so that you have a chance to experience what you're learning in additional to just typing out something that's being presented
    • Having your own project to work on is a great learning strategy whether you're visual or not. It's just a good way to learn.
    • Side projects are also a good way to continue learning even once you're working fulltime.
