Hey all, so very new to this communtiy and, kind of at a loss. I've been putting off trying to land a developer career because life keeps getting in the way. Well, today the biggest obstacle to this journey has just been put in front of me. This morning at 11:15 am, my father was diagnosed with cancer of the lungs, liver and colon. The shock and sadness are still prevalent, I'm hurting, my mother and brother are hurting. I'm sad and angry because even all three of our jobs right now won't enough. So I need build my portfolio starting right now.
I need to get one of these jobs but I don't know what to build to even get my foot in the door. I've been putting it off over and over again, but this is my wake up call. I have to land a job in the next 4 months(projection from doctors).So I reach out to you those who are already in tech for guidance and what to add. I'll link my github and linkedin profiles here, I just don't know how to focus. Please, any advice or guidance would be greatly appreciated as I take things one day at a time.I have to make this work for my family's sake
Thanks in advance,
