Life as a homeless developer.

I'm a lil brainsick but homelessness makes you that way.
I started writing software as a hedge against an old injury i had from my teen years. I have a unique condition leaving me with limited use of my hand as such any jobs like cashier call center and they like are of limits to me, i can't hold change because my hands don't bend flat, and to much typing is excruciating. Therefore being adev should get the most bang for the buck that I have left. Ive been doing this for 12 years. Well it's all bullshit and unicorns. I can't get a job to save my life. All i get is calls from recruiters wanting a full stack retard. I'm an erlang developer for about 5 years, c# php no i can't do Photoshop or frontend gay as colors because it's a different skillet. Oh but trumpy says we're at the lowest unemployment ever, ya because we're all homeless and companies are still looking for unicorns, they don't exist just like the fake jobs which is the real fake news. In reality if a company wants you its because their dev left and you are to fix their broken shit, which never worked in the first place thus cannot be fixed besides I'm not a plumber. In my opinion many companies nowadays are run by liberal sjw children who don't value your time but want the product now, spoilt. Recruiters are the worst, gimme money because i touched your resume. I'd rather just kill myself than try to appease some fucking retarded children. Its so awesome to live in a tunnel while my skills entropy while i have 160 self published github repos, know many programming languages and be told your have no value. its those same children that dont understand the flow of money or value loyalty, claim we have all these jobs but no skillid employees, so they can bring in more visa overstayers, underpay them and claim record profits, the more you pay forieners my countries money the less there is to go around in the society leading to disenfranchised people like me, and you wonder why there's so many shootings in il. How long can i endure homelessness before i start becoming a criminal? Soon i will have no other option. You employers had a choice but I'm going out with a bang.

    did you ever think of trying to leave america? either a rich country with handycap wellfare benefits like sweden or extremly cheap living costs like in south amercia or asia? And work on www.freelancer.com and upwork? https://remoteok.io

    and did you hear from the guy who has problems too with his hands, and modified Dragon speech to text to code with his voice? https://youtu.be/YRyYIIFKsdU

    silvus code with your voice

    @heyheni I'm on up work got me nowhere, similar experience with freelancer, there's Bennie's in the us just hard to get because so many ppl on em, i don't wanna quit and give in to my problems, i just lost my car after doing Uber eats for a few months and feeling worthless. Kinda hard to get anywhere when your broke ass. Ive been homeless before and climbed out of it but only for a year or so. I only panhandle for the money for my storage unit in phx and my cell phone in case someone calls, I'm not into govt benifets as i am a man who needs to be valued and there's no value in taking others money without compensating them. Eventually someone will find me and maybe take me out of this ditch. Even tho I'm losing im crusin because i made it.

    @mithereal that's a very american worldview.

    Without the help from the swiss social help i would be homeless myself. Heck, I wouldn't even have a education, if there weren't the insurance programm for the handycaped. And I don't think there is any shame to get help. Because everybody is just one live event away to get poor. And when your on your own like in the U.S it's extremly hard to get out of poverty because of hostile politics. And if the social environment is hostlile you have to change a variable in order to get out of the vicious circle of poverty.

    Maybe you find this book in a library, it makes you understand how poverty works and how to get out of it.

    @shakee93 tried it all the projects i applied to get cancelled besides it's hard to find a place to code when your homeless

    @mithereal this is actually sad, isn't there any places you can rent? What about the gears you use to code?

    If you have upwork ready send me a mail to shakee.zats@gmail.com we can try to find some projects

    I appreciate your condition but if employers around you want a full stack developer then why don't you become one?

    Wow dude....
    For me, being a programmer has always been an opportunity to earn a good money for living. In Austria it counts to the best paid jobs!
    So sad....
