Hi,
how do you think, should I or not? I think there is a problem, because when I’ll do that there will be a lot of repositories on my profile which aren’t really mine and people will think I don’t really have anything to show.
On the other side high amount of contributions can represent my effort, how much Time I’m spending on learning, etc. My goal is to get a job as a Web Developer and (fingers crossed) after 6-8 months I should be able to apply for entry position. During this time I’ll be making a lot of projects with tutorials and I’m not sure, if this can help me with getting a job or maybe make it worse.

Thank you for your time :slight_smile:

There’s no problem with tutorials as long as you made or added a twists to your own versions, or i would rather suggest projects you built from scratch that is useful in real life situations, make projects like bookstore, product store etc. You can use https://thimble.mozilla.org/ or codepen to https://codepen.io/ for your portfolio and send them to your clients.

Thanks for tips Mav, I already bought domain for my portfolio website, but my skill isn’t high enough yet to create something really attractive. So I’m using website as a container for FCC projects. Making my versions of websites from tutorials - that’s good advice
