Can I freelance as a web developer if I am under 18?

Hello guys.I started programming one year and a half ago and I can build websites with django using html,css,js for frontend and python for backend.In the last 6 months I did some projects (weather web-apps, personal finance apps and other projects like that).Right now I am working on a website to put all my projects in it because I want to start freelancing.

The only problem is that I am under 18.I know how to build nice websites but I don t know if I can get clients if I am 16.

What do you guys think?Can i freelance part-time and make some money from my passion?

It would depend on the client and where you work… but there are a lot of developers joining communities and organizations at a young age while also doing side-line work. Give it a try, if your skills match what the company / client is looking for you have a good chance of getting the job. If it doesn’t happen, try somewhere else. You’ll find something in time… Good luck!

Hello, vlad.

I welcome you to alter your title, if needed, but I am merging this topic with the one you recently created, because they are so similar.

Assuming you’re in the USA, but most countries are similar in this regard, the biggest problem you’ll run into is that as a minor, you can’t enter into contracts. I suggest using personal connections to do your projects informally “under the table” for friends, family, word-of-mouth referrals until you’re of age that you can do it as a proper business. It’s probably a better way to start anyway if you’re not already familiar with the business side of freelancing.
