I teach a full stack web dev bootcamp and one of the most important lessons for those turning it into a career is to build a portfolio. We have them host all of their projects on GitHub for employers to see. And as they learn new tech we have them update their portfolio websites using that tech.

All this is to say you’re on the right path. Build up the portfolio. Contribute to open source projects if you can find the time. Keep learning, work hard, and you’ll achieve what you desire.

Thanks for the advice Matthew. That's really cool about updating the portfolio website with new languages or skills learned. I'll remember that!
