Wow...I'm impressed. So my decision to learn mongoDB,Node Js and express was not a bad decision at all.

Remotely working from home from here in the US due to COVID of course. I heard someone mentioning they were getting paid $500/month. That is enslavement bro. They'll delibrately outsource such jobs to beat down the price. That figure is about what we'll make here in 1 day.

If you're into any of these fields; developer, infosec, coding, pentest, net sec or any IT core field, this season is the best time cash in since you can literally run 2 jobs concurrently and run a third paying IT survey gig like URI.

And most of these apply outside the states too, just got to be in the position.

Would like to ask if you can help sir.. am a freelance UI/UX DESIGNER and a GRAPHIC DESIGNER too..

don't know if you can help with 1 or 2 companies that accept remote designers even if it $1k per month.
have sent a pm sir..

I'm glad you asked
1. Programming is not a "hard" But I won't lie, can be stressful.. Programming is the act of designing and building an executable computer program to accomplish a specific task... Accomplishing this task when you still learning can be stressful but never hard... "Don't give up" my mentor encourage words...

2. There are no specific estimated time to learn but I will advice you to keep learning till the next 6months or more... By that time, you not an expect but atleast you should be able to carry on many practice project on you own

3. Its depends on what kind of programs you want to learn... If you want to be frontend web developer I think your budget should start from 50k from a well standard IT school, if you want to run full stack Or software Development , then I guess budget should be around 100+... You maybe lucky to see more cheaper rate its not a fixed price... What matters is a sound IT school

4. I can only advice you to search for top 10 IT school in your state that offer those courses ...
My mentor gave me everything I wanted before he relocated to the States as Full Stack Developer


5. Programming Is Obviously one of the best career to pursue right now.. We are in the word of digital Computer.. Other field needs us to function well... Medical needs us.. We provide lots of ICU equipment human need to survive
Education needs IT
Banks Can't run without IT
Even in the military.
IT personal are one of the highest paid in Canada /UnitedStates also Europe..

6.You are have very high assurance to secure a job with your IT skills... But note! Not all that graduate will get a job in IT company... Just like medical school

We call ourselves Qualified Computer Scientist because we understand the concept and fundamental of our career especially in the practical area...

You will secure a job if you know what you doing
You need to tell yourself! I want to be a programmer and you must prove It...
If you learn and you know it... Consider yourself settled in life...

Tho NIGERIA got issue with Employment,
Bright brain or not... Naija will always be Naija

I will advice if you still an undergraduate studying computer science... As soon as you through with school and you have your Skills at hand.... Pls I beg find a way to relocate outside the country

NorthAmerica value IT
Europe value IT
Asia value IT
Africa? Not all

Pls find a way to run your master in advance computer Outside nigeria and not only you will be okay in Life...

You will be successful...

Any Day I realize I follow my dream right from my kid age... I will always be greatful

Let me tell you a funny facts about me

While arranging my docs
I found my result in Nursary school

Out of 9 subjects

Result was
8 subjects result was D
While one subject was A

Computer was only subject I scored A

I was very little then but I know my destiny that day


Yours maybe different but still you can rewrite it and be a full Time Programmer and earn fortune for yourself and your family

There is more to remote jobs than you think. Here is my personal experience.

Recently, i received a mail from a remote american tech company that i applied for. I was informed, that an interview will take placed few days, i prepared for the interview and the day came , lot of questions were asked that questioned my experience in web development. Finally the interview was over, but still i felt that i really embarrassed myself and messed up but i kept my fate.

Two days later, i received a mail from the same company where all the company guidelines, workflows and other necessary information i needed to get started were contained.

I resumed work a week after, soon i decided to set up my work environment just for me to realize i will be working actively at midnight from 11:30 - 6:30 due to time zones difference.

So basically, my life was staying on the PC every night and i adapted to it to the extent that i might not use my PC yet i can't sleep at night.

Soon after, i felt ill for 3 days after 4 weeks of sleepless nights and i was advised to reduce my working time and sleep often.

Knowing it was dangerous for my health, i cut my working time to 4AM and i will be off to bed. This step almost cost me my job because i published a new feature to the company product but i didn't include proper documentation of what the feature does and the developers and the members were annoyed with me to that.

Since it was a remote company though they have an office at California, most of their members work remotely, the company meetings are always held on Thursday via Google Meet and i have been marked absent for 3 times in a row which is really bad for my report. I was warned if i miss the next meeting, there is a possibility that i might be on probation or worst relieved of my role.

NB: I work as a frontend developer using Vuejs as my core language.

This is totally a matter of preference. If you would rather do math and analyze data, obviously the data science route is the way to go. If you just like programming, being a full stack developer would be awesome for you. Either one will provide great opportunities and remuneration if that's what you're concerned about. In this case, you should just pursue what interests you more.



Both are lucrative
Just think about it and pick any that you think will be easy for you

It's not totally true. I researched on the requirements needed by employers in Canada, and the prominent requirement is[b] "Bachelors, Masters or PhD degree in Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, or equivalent"[/b] and some relevant skills such knowledge of tensor flow, pandas, NoSQL, etc
