Hi all! I am a soon to be college graduate passionate about full stack development. I thought this would be a fun platform to connect with others that have similar goals as well as to stay up to date about technological advancements!

I've explored a few different technologies and I feel like I am gravitating more towards MERN. I try to remain flexible and always learn new things though :D How about yourself?

Cool. So mostly js? Professionaly i work on a lot of wordpress stuff with html, css, js/react and php. But besides that i use whatever gets the job done! 😊 Are you a dev for a living yet? Or are you still learning?

Mostly js, yeah. I am currently applying for jobs because I am graduating very soon.

I have done a freelance job before and might do some more freelance for a bit to get by and learn more depending on how long the job search goes. Covid changed things up a bit, so I have to stay flexible.

Covid is making things a bit more difficult for sure. But who knows your freelance gig will be very succesfull, and you wont need to find a job. I did it for a couple of years myself, and it was a really nice way to make a living! 😊
