Sweet post! As a backend dev i've always struggled with building a portfolio. On average, the backend work is not something that people see.
There's the basic backend projects that everyone does, like a todolist app, where you add and remove items, a simple blog where you add & remove pages, but this doesnt show anything to potential clients / employers.
Any ideas on this?
I feel your pain. 🙋♂️ I think having good personal descriptions of what you worked on is important and what you got out of it. If someone can't see the code or product, having good examples and stories around your experience working on those things can go a long way.
