I'm starting a software devlog where I take you on the ride with me while creating and troubleshooting my software.
Ok, but why though?
Before you click away, hear me out;
I've always believed that in tech, and especially coding, experience is worth more than certifications.
The problem though, is that it's really hard to show experience on a resume. Yeah sure, you can list what you've done but, if you don't want a 20-page resume, you're going to leave stuff out.
But what if you documented your entire coding journey, what if you can show that you are capable of what you claim?
🦉: "Start a dev blog"
Sure, that's an idea I hear a lot from coding instructors and tutorials, but is it really effective?
The answer is yes...and no.
Of course, documenting your journey in text is documenting, but it's not accessible.
Hiring managers don't want to scroll through countless articles reading your thoughts. The fact is, people are busy and lazy, and reading takes effort.
BUT, sitting on your couch, watching an entertaining coding journey, now there's an idea the masses can get behind, I know, cause that's me!
💸Money? ✨Fame? ☕Free Coffee?
No, don't get caught up in these (although the last one I can support). Remember that your videos are a means to an end. It's a tool to help you in your journey as a developer.
It's the key to unlock a door, the link to make connections and the proof that you can. It's the pudding ❗
Getting caught up in all it is not causes you to lose focus on what it is; it's a documented journey and exploration of your passion...it's just you, sharing what you love 💖
I just posted the trailer for my new YouTube channel. I'm starting a software devlog where I take you on the ride with me while creating and troubleshooting my software. Go check it out 👉 https://youtu.be/a9bnhQh3f4I
