50+ Resources & Opportunities in Tech

surajv profile image Surajv ・8 min read

The year 2020 had been a roller coaster ride probably for all of us.
I spent a lot of time cooped up in my home. Though this was the time when I discovered an ample amount of resources and opportunities that are available in the tech industry.
I have compiled a list of resources which includes cheatsheets, roadmaps, interview preparation resources, design resources, etc.

It also has a collection of opportunities that are available in tech.

While most of the opportunities would be useful for student developers, the resources are for all.

Also, I've open-sourced the repository. I would love to have contributors!

Link to the repo: here.
