It took me about a year to find my first position and it was in a nearby city (I'd had to take a 1h train). So yeah, don't get discouraged if you have hard time getting that first role. Now, I get recrutement emails all the time.
Here's a few completely personal advices:
The whole industry if not junior friendly. Once you catch the train it's all good, but it's far from easy.
If you have any questions, hit me up here or over Twitter.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
