Thank you very much Colin, I always lurked about, but your article made me register just to thank you :)

Do you perhaps have some advice for a very junior developer? I want to get some exposure whilst being able to continue my studies. So a basic income would be nice. But I don't think anyone would take someone as junior as I for a remote job.

Right now I am doing a few MS courses mostly in SQL and C#. But I don't know if these areas are very sought after. What languages would give me an edge?

Thank you again!

It's very difficult to land full time jobs as a junior or entry with no experience. What I did to overcome this was seek out small one-off freelance jobs and slowly built up professional experience. Most people won't risk hiring you but there are thousands of "fix my website" freelance gigs out there. I wrote another article explaining how I did exactly this fullbit.ca/from-zero-to-six-figure... good luck!
