Hello everyone. My name is Chris Lewis. Nice to meet you.
I don’t know if I am going to be an active user in the future. But at this very moment, I want to ask you a question.
Could I become a developer in a foreign country?
My level in English is C1. B2 awarded with Pass With Distinction to be exact thanks to my hobby as a Formula One Challenge '99-'02 mod developer, where I do modding since I was 13. I would like to be a front-end web developer focused on Accessibility and User Experience. In fact, that was my specialty in the past, but nobody gave me a chance. I live in a country with huge unemployment (more than 70% of youth unemployment n my city), and even when I dedicated my short adult life to intense studying since 2012, missing so many experiences and pleasures of adult life (I live in poverty since that year), I never, EVER, got a chance of getting a job.
And I have 27 years old.
Lack of money to going somewhere. No experience. Asperger Syndrome. Inadequate location. Last time I was rejected for practice because, even when I had an almost perfect score, I was rejected due to immunosuppression (vulnerability to CoViD-19), a secondary effect of the pills I consume to keep my kidney working. I have been studying oppositions for nine months and I fear that these will reject me or leave me lying down because of my kidney disease in case I pass the exam.
My country has never given me the opportunity to live with dignity as a normal adult. I would like to start from scratch with another project again and do a good job for a foreign company.
It is possible to get a job out there as a front-end web developer with no experience and just freeCodeCamp courses and a C1 in English? Which free courses should I do if I can do the difference?
If I should abandon the idea, please comment it as well.
