I am in love with coding, i want to have more experience in it. Once you have obtained your certificates how do you apply or search for work or any opportunities? Specifically those who are in SA (Gauteng). How has coding helped you get opportunities?
The most important thing for self taught developers is the portfolio.
That is going to be your showcase for your projects.
Make sure to build projects that are unique and show the best of your abilities.
When it comes to looking for work, I would suggest reading up on the job process like how to write a strong resume, how to put together a strong portfolio, etc.
Here are some articles to get you started.
I would also highly suggest reading through previous discussions here in the forum on how to apply for work.
