I have been meaning to write this post for almost a year now but with all the work that has gone into writing my new book I haven’t had the time. Now I have a bit more free time I intend to start posting on this blog more regularly.
I just got an email from someone who wanted my advice on how to break into the web development industry, so I thought this would make a good topic for a post so it helps not only the guy who got in contact but also anyone else who may not know how to get started within the web development community. Having been on both the interviewee and interviewer side of the table I am happy to offer my 2 cents and I would love it if anyone else with advice would reply to this post in the comments.
As a person I am very insecure. I struggle to introduce myself to people I haven’t spoken to before and this something that has often left me feeling isolated. This is especially the case when going to development meetups where often I haven’t known anybody.
