Building my developer portfolio reality blog.

This year i made a resolution to build my online portfolio and i hope before the year ends i would write How I Got My First Dream Remote Job article.

I have come to the realization that no matter how introverted you are you might end up not achieving a lot or anything if you don't put yourself out there, unfortunately i fell into this group. I am a lover of tech, a developer for quite a long time and yet i cannot point out one successful project that i'm affiliated to. All the project i have had an opportunity of building is either shutdown or unsuccessful so how do you add that to your portfolio?

Learning how to work
This year i'm starting all over again like a baby learning how to walk, i'm a beginner learning the best way to write code, how to work in a team, how to use the latest technologies in development, build my OS profile, tech blogging, basically i'll follow technology as it changes and hopefully get my remote job along the way.

I have decided to blog about my activities and experience every step of the way, currently am participating in two non-paid remote internship programs, tho one of the internship claimed that they'll be handing out cash price if you get to a certain level. Well, i don't care am there for the experience.

Stay tuned i'll blog about the internship every step of the way!

P.S: I will be bluntly honest with all my post.

Exactly. This is the very reason I recently started my tech blog. Being an introvert, I am always reluctant to show off my skills and projects. This year, I decided to put more efforts on building my developer portfolio. There is no point of learning new skills and developing awesome products if you can not explain to others.

I wish you a very best of luck!
