How I switched from PHP to Java

Java programmer with 6 years of experience Dmitry Zaitsev, part-time author of the CyberHare video blog, tells his story of switching from PHP to Java. The reason for abandoning his first programming language turned out to be prosaic. Dreaming of creating his own browser game, Dmitry realized that the technical capabilities of PHP would not allow this to happen. The optimal solution was to study Java, and then fully switch to this language in my professional career. The author of the video compares various languages ​​in terms of the features of implementing projects for the front end and back end.

Mistakes in negotiations | Stream on Upwork | How to become a freelance web programmer

Most newbie programmers want to get a full-time job in an office after training. Yes, this provides a number of obvious advantages: both from the point of view of a future career and in terms of receiving a stable and permanent income. But, oddly enough, many developers choose freelancing rather than an office. One-time work for a foreign customer has many advantages. In addition, it can help out a programmer in situations where he does not have the opportunity for official employment for some personal reason. The author of the YouTube channel Profitable Freelance held a webinar a few weeks ago, during which he shared with viewers the features of finding customers on the largest English-language exchange, Upwork. If you are a software developer and want to find well-paid jobs remotely, take an hour and a half of free time to watch this video. Perhaps, if you have encountered difficulties finding work in your city, a freelancer exchange can solve this problem.

As is already clear from the title of the video, in the end Roman was not hired by Google. But why such a failure awaited him, he will now tell himself.
