I’m a new - old dev; meaning I haven’t done any serious development on production systems in the last… 5 years I’d say. Over the past few months, I’ve been upskilling while searching for new employment, applying to jobs, applying, getting rejection letters, and so on. I’m at the point where if it’s personalized, I get a bittersweet sense of oh… I don’t know… accomplishment? I should put that on my resume - “personally rejected by x companies” haha
So the other day, I got invited to a take home coding test as part of an application I recently submitted - totally unexpected but I’m both excited and nervous to say the least!
All sorts of worrisome thoughts flood my mind but I know that all I can do is be honest in my attempt and just be prepared to explain any deficiencies I may have. Whether I actually manage to solve the problem may not be as important as the process so I try to remind myself to stay focused on having a good approach. (By coincidence, I was just doing some of the projects in the FCC curriculum when this all came up)
Well, I just wanted to share that and say it’s good to be here - lots of great content (even more to be released) and I see a healthy tech community with a comfy vibe…kinda rare yeah.
Nice to meet you all, feel free to reach out and say hi!
