"I thought I was too old...
I didn't yet know that learning how to put a project together is the key to your success."
A portfolio is a great way to prove your skills to employers. But how do you create one if you don’t know how to start a project? Most tutorials focus on syntax. You don’t get to see the "why" behind it all. Worse still, you don’t get to see the raw unedited workflow.
You don’t get to see the mistakes. You don’t get to see the thought process. And, you still don’t know how to create your own project from scratch!
You get tired of learning. No matter how hard you try, you feel stuck behind other developers. The dream of being a web developer seems so far away…
If you’re trying to switch careers, it gets worse. It’s so much harder when you have to deal with another job ( or two! ). You have to juggle work, family, and coding. It’s hard enough teaching yourself to code. But, doing it while you’re tired, confused, and frustrated…
Yet, every other day someone posts online “I just got hired as a web dev! My hard work has paid off.” I don’t know about you but this kind of stuff used to frustrate me. Good for the OP, but what about your hard work? What do you have to show for it? Well, if you feel you’re not making enough progress, you’re not alone. And, it’s not your fault!
If you're worried about your age, I get it. I felt that way too. When I became serious about web development, I was in my thirties... depending financially on my girlfriend. Luckily, she believed in me. But still, I had to take the leap of faith. And, it has paid off. Fast forward till today, I've been on both sides of the table. I've been hired for projects. I've hired developers myself. So, I can assure you of one thing.
There is a shortage of devs who are truly committed to the craft. This means that if you truly commit, you have an advantage. Your portfolio is proof that you are serious about becoming a developer.
There are many reasons why having your own projects is beneficial. Here are a few of them:
But, if you don’t do a project, you will NEVER become a real developer. You’ll struggle with getting better. And, you will find it impossible to get a job or freelance clients.
What exactly is a project?
A project is something that you or somebody could actually use. As in, you could take to a person who is not a coder and they would find it useful. So, this is different from doing a coding challenge or practising a concept.A project allows you to show your skills in a practical way.
What matters most is that you get it done. Get that first project under your belt. Once you’ve created one, you can easily create others.
Here is the good news: you can follow a proven blueprint that will help you create a portfolio that gets you hired. You can master the art of creating web apps - no matter how big or small. It doesn’t matter if you’re just starting out. This process will guide you every step of the way.
The Portfolio Blueprint is a step-by-step system I have used to get hired for many projects. You can use it even if you have no idea where to start. In fact, it shows you where to find good ideas for project, whether you're a beginner or a seasoned pro!
It’s a reliable formula that takes you from the idea stage all the way through to the finished web app. It shows you how to break down your idea - no matter how complex it is. This will allow you to create complex projects without getting lost or confused.
You will actually create a stand-alone project!
Also, you’ll get cheatsheets and diagrams to help you. You will know how all these things are tied together. You will also gain a grasp on the relationships between various concepts of building an app.
GitHub has become the industry standard for managing your code. For this reason, it’s crucial that you’re comfortable with it. The Blueprint includes a module that gives you enough skill to use Git for your project. Plus, GitHub is a great place to keep your portfolio.
PLEASE NOTE: The focus of this course is not on syntax. It’s about the bigger picture and behind-the-scenes of how to create a real web app. Of course, you’ll still get code examples. But, you should have at least some basics to get the most out of it.
