I know exactly what you mean about the "novice" feeling. I struggle with that as well. That is so good to hear about your tech writing skills; as a developer, that will come in very handy in writing documentation (among other things). In fact, I would recommend getting into a few open-source projects and trying your hand at updating their documentation :D
What tech stack are you learning? Do you have an online portfolio? I've been through your GitHub - are your projects there deployed somewhere?
I have several friends in Austin, though I haven't had the chance to visit yet :)
I've been wanting to contribute to open source. I guess I'm still a bit unsure on how to get started and identify beginner-friendly projects. Right now, we're learning Rails and Vue. I'll have a portfolio and deployed project soon. We're starting that process right now.
I highly recommend a visit to Austin for the food alone. Might want to wait for fall though. The summers are brutal!
That's amazing sis. If you're learning Rails then the Dev.To OpenSource Project is PERFECT for you! Setting the environment up locally is the easiest and they have lots of great "first-timer" issues 😄
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
