Needing some career advice.
Hey guys I'm 21 years old and currently on my third year studying Information Systems. For the past two I've been working either on internships or freelancing, at this time I've worked on around 10 projects, some for big companies. During that time I managed to get experience on many languages and tools and although I'm no expert on any, I've gained confidence to approach problems better, analyze them and project solutions.
Right now I'm thinking about searching for a remote job, as I live in Brazil and salaries here are not good.
Any advice on getting a job?2
So I got assigned to this project last week to help other developers to remove bugs from a android app. First bug I have to deal with: field that should only accept integers is accepting other characters and thus crashes the app.
Alright seems like a simple bug to get into the project and Xamarin. So I set some break points and find the bug: "uncaught FormatException on line 789 Convert.ToInt(string, v) .
OK then, implement some try-catch and add a warning message to the user.
let's try it out... alright, message works, close message and app crashes
search for the bug in code... "uncaught FormatException on line 899 Convert.ToInt(string, v)"
wait a minute, ~ Ctrl + F ~ - "Convert.ToInt"
17 matches on file
oh fuck me...2
