My name is Patrik Kiss(yes Patrik, not Patrick), I'm newbie web developer from Hungary. I finished a 2 year software developer course a few months ago.
There I've learned the basics of HTML, CSS, JS, Jquery, Jquery-AJAX, responsive design, Bootstrap 4, PHP/OOP/PDO and MySQL.
I've learned Java as well, but I haven't used it ever since the exams, since I hate it, so a "Hello World" is my only knowledge left in it.
Currently I'm using these technologies while working on my own website. Unfortunately I still haven't got a job, since there aren't many companies looking for beginners around where I live.
But I'm not letting this discourage me, I code as much as I can in my free time, constantly learning new things during the time. I code at least 5-6 hours a day, many times 8-10 hours, sometimes even 12. Believe it or not, I don't find it monotonous at all, I really enjoy web development(for now).
Since I'd finished my studies, I've learned a lot, especially organizing my codes and files properly, creating functions that can be reused with just a few changes, etc.
This is a big deal for me, since in my last big project I threw all files in one folder. It looked total garbage not gonna lie. Finding anything there was a nightmare. And let's not talk about the code itself...
I mean, I'm proud of the final result, and I didn't think the code looked bad, in fact, I found it good back then, but with my current knowledge, I realize how bad it actually is.
I've also learned the basic use of htaccess, so my URLs are not ugly anymore(I know it's not a big deal, but it is for me).
I only found this site because Mr.Google recommended me an article from here, and I liked the it from the beginning. I find the design really nice, simple, yet great, not "over designed". I read lots of interesting stuff here.
Also, I'm a weeb, so I like watching anime in my free time, or as a break during programming.
But I'm not a shut-in, I go out quite often, and I do sports regularly, such as running, football and body workout.
Well, this one turned out to be a long introduction, thanks for reading!
you've done a great job - you've learned pretty big stack of technologies!
I live in Germany, and many companies are looking for junior developers, may be you could find something for you hier.
Szia Patrik, Budapesten élsz? Szeretnék jövőre oda költözni és ahogy olvastam, hogy még nem kaptál állást, kíváncsi vagyok, hogy vajon Budapesten milyen lehetőségem lenne állást kapni. 🙂
