Landing your first web development job

Where to start

Github

Ideas for starting small on projects

  1. You could save same of the snippets of code you’re particularly proud of to a Gist. This can be something as simple as a small code kata, it still conveys your passion and commitment to learning.
  2. Look at interesting repos and star them to follow their progress. Be prepared to talk about why you have starred these particular repos.
  3. Clone small projects and try an build something on top of them
  4. Follow tutorials but add something extra to it once you’re up and running. Here is a starter project I created for getting your own React web app with auth included, all instructions are included in the README.
