Discussion on: How Would I Go Teach Programming Online?

but I'm really prone to slip-ups and stuff.

What do you mean? Making mistakes while you're coding?

But I really need a way to earn a few bucks right now (because of this crisis right now).

The trouble is, you'd be competing with some big players who already have a following and, not to be critical, but you may find it difficult to get people to pay you if you're not an experienced dev. I would focus on learning yourself, and getting used to streaming, rather than trying to make money.

Maybe try something like fiverr if you need to make some cash?

Yeah, but maybe it's just the doubts I'm having.

You have a point there. I'm kinda overwhelmed on how 'competitive' it is on this field. Experience is really valuable, I guess. I have Fiverr but it's been ages and I haven't got anything from it.

I might go learn for a month and see any changes from there. Thank you for the help!

Try not to worry about the "slip ups", all developers make mistakes, regardless of seniority, just like every developer can always learn from another developer regardless of level.

Try not to rush into the industry. Maybe just do some projects for friends and/or family. People are going to be reluctant to pay a non-seasoned engineer.
