Iโ€™ve been a web developer for just over 6 years now (6 of them self employed and the rest working for an agency).

Iโ€™m pretty passionate about this topic because I was led to believe to get a job or become a good dev you needed to know everything... and wow was I wrong!

  1. You donโ€™t need to know it all! I use Google atleast 100 times a day even for some pretty basic stuff. Donโ€™t be ashamed, even the most seasoned devs do this.

  2. Keep on learning. There are plenty of resources. The web is always evolving. You donโ€™t need fancy degrees, Iโ€™m completely self taught.

  3. Have fun! Itโ€™s an awesome and rewarding career.
