1.5 years of "experience". I got my first part-time dev job through my internship.

During my 2nd year of college I was required to do 20 weeks of internship. At the end of my internship my supervisor offered me a 0-hour contract as he was so impressed by my progress. During this time I did HTML, CSS, PHP and jQuery (this was 2012-2014)

By the time I left that company to do exams I had over 1 year of experience in the field.

What's a 0-hour contract?

A 0-hour contract in the Netherlands is a type of contract where you're not given any set hours and you can just come in and work whenever you want, can or are called for it and you get paid for the hours you did work.
