    I couldnt find your thread but was gonna ask? Are you self-taught with python? and how did you get the job/how much do you earn (if you don't mind answering that) ?

    Was thinking about learning it, might really dedicate myself if it pays more than what im going to school for

  • Started learning Python recently

    Have some other programming experience but trying to move from this IT job soon

    I learned Python at uni doing computer science but that was really the basics, I improved more doing little projects like the one in that thread. You can definitely learn it yourself with people in a thread like this helping you out

    Got the job by applying for everything that sounded similar to things I had done at uni, I didn鈥檛 do any internships so I think the work I did on open source stuff on Github was what made the difference

    I鈥檓 making a few thousand above the average for my country but not that much at all

    Python is absolutely worth learning though, it and Javascript are very sought after.
    Definitely let me know if you have any more questions

    Are you currently working with python?
    In my first career position after being self taught and am trying to progress forward, so open to advice.
    Learning algorithms, sql and better automation, already have some js/css/html experience too.

    I am yeah, it's computer vision stuff so I'm working with OpenCV as well as my company's proprietary API

    I can't really talk about how to advance atm since I've only been here a short time,
    but you're on the right track.

    I'm sure you know algorithms are important for technical interviews, but having your own small projects is key. Even something relatively easy like the script I made to scrape threads would look good on your resume

    If you learn:

    • Python for backend
    • ReactJS for frontend (since you already know Javascript)
    • SQL + something like MongoDB for database stuff
    • REST APIs

    You'll be good

    @down this should be helpful for you too

  • i jus write matlab scripts and occasionally python scripts for random s*** (computational stuff, data a***ysis, automation tasks)

    Grass is always greener. You're enjoying your job as a tester, that's the most important. And if you want more progression, is it possible to combine working activities such as coding?

    There is som coding i do anyway for the testing, but since my role is as a tester i dont think any companies would consider that enough experience

    i guess ive either gotta commit to testing or start practicing coding in my free time

    Its not possible to combine it at your current company? Lot of organisations appreciate assertiveness and if you can be of more value to the company, that's often a reason to let you combine it.

    I'm coding less rn and focus partly on project management / client communication right now which is valuable to the company because I'm better at managing expectations from a technical standpoint, which comes in handy for stakeholder management.

    i work for a kind of big-ish company and they way they structure the company is really weird (everyone's role is just 'Consultant' unless you choose to be a specialist in a specific role)

    so you're kinda just put onto whatever project needs someone. I applied for the company under a tester job opening, but for the first 9 months i was working as a DevOps engineer in the Infrastructure department (which was pretty much just writing documents and presenting to the client)

    It'a a really cushy job with a lot of benefits but the thing thats putting me off is that it seems like theres not much progression.

    i dont even wanna be a manager or anything (unless i get into project management) its just the money is a big thing for me, i dont wanna be stuck on a similar salary 3 years from now
