re: What does it take to become a jr. dev? VIEW POST


A little HTML and CSS, JS helps, a positive attitude, tenacity, chutzpah, getting over the fear of asking "dumb questions".

Make some contributions to open source projects, especially if you want to work remotely. Open issues, fix documentation, maybe try to tackle an issue marked "Good First Issue". I learned a tonne the first time a maintainer asked me to rebase my PR. I thought they were talking gibberish! The answers didn't come easy, but the community is much more open and helpful today than it was even five years ago, so dive in!


Great response. Thanks Benny.
