AleCx042082076dYes, some of it at least. Work on whatever job you can't get. I don't give a shit if it is delphi, or VB or whatever the fuck, just get your foot on the door as quick as you can. Read a couple of manuals on vbscript and find yourself someone desperate to have people that would hire you for it(since it is a dead technology) and then get something that you can put on a resume, work on your portfolio website, don't present the technologies you used as much as you would present what you created while finishing with what it was built with, by that time you would have convinced someone that you were more than capable of programming something useful. Then focus on the tech stack that you actually want to employ. I see from your profile that you have Node in it, node is absolutely amazing and i love it, but if getting into the field in your area on node makes it hard then look for something else. PHP is fucking everywhere
On work on your people skills, if you can charm them it will be worth more than you fiddling around data structures and algorithms, but still get good on that shit so that you can showcase them skills for those little interview tests.
wannabe53375d@AleCx04 Good advice. I head to Seattle come January for family reasons, will start seeing if there is anything there for foot in door. Thank you for taking the time, I appreciate it.
Currently getting my linux back up to snuff doing some intro wargames. I've always felt better on the back end than the front end :P
