I started learning JS about two months ago and, despite the lack of experience, some people were willing to pay me to develop stuff for them.
The fact is I published my first work open-source and free to use (streaming overlay) and that may be the reason.

Public, open-source projects can get you recognize if done right. It's a modern marketing tool for beginners!

    I got hired because I was able to do what they needed. They didn’t give one single fuck if I did open source nor if I can understand the language.

    I was able to do their job, that’s the only god damn reason they care.

    @010001111 I'm not saying it WILL FOR SURE get you a job. What I'm saying is open-source can be a tool to show yourself and what you can do.

    It's obvious companies look for someone to do the job. First step for a complete beginner is showing they can do what they say they can.

    sadly not better than just increasing the digit next to your "years of professional experience"
