Programming / Re: [Career Post] "What Are My Chances Of Getting A Job As A Web Developer?" by nelsonoba: 7:41pm On Oct 06
Grupo:


Liar.

If you know what you are doing, people will hire you.

The tech industry is the only place where you are not asked for certification or grade before you are hired. Just be good and show previous projects you have done.


Very well said! I studied Mechanical Engineering in Uni, but I started learning programming years after I graduated. I didn't just learn wordpress, I learnt HTML, CSS, Javascript, PHP, Laravel, Angular, Vue.js, Node.js, Typescript, MySQL, NoSQL. I didn't go to school to learn them, I took many courses on YouTube and Udemy, and I did many personal projects to practice what I was learning and I was very consistent in my learning process. I didn't give up even when I faced many hurdles I found difficult to cross until I crossed them. From the day I started my first course beginning with HTML to the day I got my first job in the industry as a Junior PHP developer was about 13 months. After being on the job for about 6 months and I updated my CV to include my few months of experience plus the other new technology stack I had also learnt since I started my first job, I posted my CV online and updated my LinkedIn, and I started getting regular job offers from recruiters almost everyday. In order not to exaggerate, any week I don't receive offers from recruiters to accept their interview invitations for a job they have available, I receive nothing less than 2 invitations. There are some days when I receive up to 3 different invitations for job interviews and I haven't applied for any of them.

The point is this; be very serious with your learning. Don't go into web development just to learn how to build wordpress websites. And don't be a mediocre. Push yourself consistently and keep learning and practicing, and after a while jobs will start chasing you. Don't go into this industry so that you can get a job after 3months of training or even after 6months. You need to give it time and consistency. In fact, if I were to advice a novice who wants to start now, I will tell them to budget at least the next 18months of their life to tedious learning from courses and practicing, and to be honest, if they follow this rigorous procedure, even before the 18th month, jobs would be looking for them. Again, don't expect to be learning like only 10hours or less a week and be able to achieve this target in that 18months

Most of the good programmers in Nigeria today didn't study computer science.

Pcguru, a popular programmer on this platform didn't study computer science.

Dhtml18, who has now deactivated his account, another popular programmer here didn't study computer science. In fact, Dhtml18's case is very interesting, because he studied medicine and surgery, became a qualified doctor but he is not practicing medicine, rather he's programming and he has worked with many notable organizations.


Note: there is a world of difference between a web programmer and a WordPress installer.

Travel / Re: Air Peace: Allen Onyema Crying As Nigerians Return From South Africa by nelsonoba: 12:29pm On Sep 12
Dottore:
We dey look

Are you sure you're OK? So you want them to send private jets that can carry no more than 10 persons all the way to South Africa and fly back just like that when there are hundreds or thousands of people waiting to be flown back? If you don't upgrade your thinking capacity to be very objective, I wonder how you can ever think to grow wealthy like some of these rich people or rich pastors you envy. People like you would not have a problem using a bucket to empty a swimming pool when you have neighbours you can borrow a pumping machine from to do the work in 1hour

Romance / Re: Ladies, Would You Date A Guy That Won't Ask You For Sex Until Marriage? by nelsonoba: 12:21am On Aug 31
internationalman:
Does a guy like that exist?

Even if he did, ladies would assume he's not OK down there...

That's how one impotent pastor imprisoned one girl like that for life all in the name of I'M A PASTOR, SO NO SEX BEFORE MARRIAGE

I hope you will maintain this boldness to explain to God when you stand before him in judgement at the end of your life

Culture / Re: Bishop Paulinus Ezeokafor's Iwaji (New Yam) Festival 2019 by nelsonoba: 12:03am On Aug 31
PerfectlyPerfect:

New yam festival is a period of celebrating the bounties of the harvest. Nothing occultic about it. Besides, define occultic.
People rush to condemn our traditions and readily embrace stupid foreign traditions even when some of ours are better

Mr man stop lying to yourself! There was absolutely nothing good about our African traditional religion. Who did Amadioha help? Do you want to talk about all the human sacrifices that the "gods of the land" were always demanding from time to time? Or the killing of twins until Mary Slessor fought against it?

We may have a few good things in our culture such as respect for elders, etc, but certainly nothing good when it comes to traditional religion.

peacettw:
Thank you my Bishop for recognising our culture.
Sadly in my church, the new yam festival is being declared occultic.
To this day, it truly baffles me why we all cannot worship God whilst still upholding our many harmless traditional values.

Oga, Jesus said YOU CANNOT SERVE TWO MASTERS AT THE SAME TIME. EITHER YOU SERVE GOD OR YOU SERVE MAMMON, BUT NOT BOTH!

If those new yam festivals involve making incarnations or some form of appeasement to the "gods of the land" or to dead "ancestors", then IT IS INDEED OCCULTIC and no genuine child of God has any business participating in it. But if the festivals can be conducted without any reference to gods of the land or ancestors and people can just bring their new yams to church and do Thanksgiving to Jesus alone, then it is VERY SAFE FOR A GENUINE CHRISTIAN TO PARTICIPATE IN IT. OTHERWISE YOU ARE ON YOUR OWN!

Religion / Re: Apostle Suleman Fires Back At Critics Of Dollar Splash On Twitter by nelsonoba: 3:30pm On Aug 20
hatbricker:
Nearly same thing happened to me, the church I was 100% dedicated and a worker to, I told the G.O I recently got visa and it will soon expire, he asked me to keep praying that he's busy preparing for the church annual convention now. Religion is a scam in this country.

Is that G.O. your God or your father? Do you know if he had money at the time you asked him? And even if he had any money, do you know what family problems or how many other people's problem he was trying to handle when you met him? Oga, anybody that is not your father does not owe you anything in life! Do you want us to also begin to ask you about HOW MANY PEOPLE HAVE ALSO ASKED YOU FOR HELP AND YOU DIDN'T GIVE THEM EITHER BECAUSE YOU DIDN'T HAVE AT THAT TIME OR BECAUSE YOU JUST DIDN'T WANT TO GIVE Abeg go and sit down and stop being a hypocrite!!
