It sounds like you're really well prepared already. What do you mean by technical experience?

There will always be holes that you can fill. But that's also where the interviews come in imo. So maybe your going into too much detail. Did you start applying for jobs with this setup?

When I am saying "technical experience" I want to express which concepts I learned in my work and/or the courses I made.
I know that recruiters have little time to read that much details and they appreciate when a candidate shows what they know or have learned in a few lines, but I think that could send a wrong idea (a classic example are the five star/points aside each technology without much context about what that rate means). At the end, you could be right about interviews and how they fill those specific holes.

So far I didn't start to applying for jobs, I am waiting some more time unit my country crysis stabilizes and I can make the change.

Besides the details I mentioned. Do you think I can improve in other way that creating a personal site? I am open to any advice :D

I have the feeling that you approach the career change very structured. So it seems like you're well prepared. Just try to apply and you'll see what results come back.

From my perspective the best thing you can do to improve is to build projects and try to use professional workflows as much as you can. Most importantly is planning the project by splitting it into features and creating tasks and Git workflows (e.g. GitHub pull request flow). And by writing the code you'll automatically improve those skills as well.

If you happen to be a React developer you can have a look at my course at ooloo.io where you can learn how to work on a professional dev team.

Thank you for the advice Johannes. I will study about workflows and go for that path.
Also I will check your course for a more professional approach.
