印度软件开发人员_我如何辍学并在19岁时在印度找到了一份开发人员的工作

印度软件开发人员

关于我自己 (A bit about myself)

I’m a nineteen-year-old self-taught web developer from India. I started my programming journey during my freshmen year of college. Computers fascinated me since my childhood. I still remember getting my first computer when I was in second grade. I was glued to it since then. I thought programming would be too complex but I knew I wanted to do something in the tech field.

我是一位来自印度的19岁自学成才的网络开发人员。 我在大学一年级期间开始了编程之旅。 从我小时候起,计算机就让我着迷。 我仍然记得上二年级时得到第一台计算机。 从那时起,我一直坚持不懈。 我以为编程太复杂了,但是我知道我想在技术领域做些什么。

I was an extremely below average kid during my school years. Failing exams, bunking classes, addicted to YouTube. All I wanted to do was play video games and watch YouTube videos. I decided enough was enough and was planning to improve myself at least after joining college. So that’s why I decided to enroll in B.Sc. in Computer Science after finishing high school. I managed to get into a reputed university in our city. I was very excited and curious to learn everything about computers.

在我的学年里,我是一个远远低于平均水平的孩子。 考试不及格,补习班,沉迷于YouTube。 我只想玩视频游戏和观看YouTube视频。 我认为足够了,并且至少在加入大学后计划改善自己。 这就是为什么我决定报名参加B.Sc. 高中毕业后进入计算机科学专业。 我设法进入了我们城市的一所著名大学。 我对学习有关计算机的一切感到非常兴奋和好奇。

大学的开始 (The beginning of college)

College was nothing like I expected it to be. Most of my classmates joined Computer Science just because they wanted to get a degree in something. Our professors told us to memorize C programs to pass our exams. They didn’t even bother to explain why we do something the way we do it. My classmates would memorize algorithms like bubble sort, binary search, etc line by line just to get through practicals.

大学并不像我期望的那样。 我的大多数同学之所以加入计算机科学,只是因为他们想获得某些学位。 我们的教授告诉我们记住C程序以通过考试。 他们甚至没有费心去解释为什么我们以自己的方式做某事。 我的同学会逐行记住诸如冒泡排序,二进制搜索等算法,只是为了通过实践。

For each semester’s practical, we had about 15–25 programs in the syllabus. Our professor would send us screenshots of programs we had to write on our class WhatsApp group. We had to write all those programs with flowcharts, steps to be taken in a notebook. Before a practical exam, we had to rewrite all of them again on another notebook which we called our “record notebook”. Then right before our practical exam, we had to submit the two notebooks. Only if we had written all of these twice would we be permitted to enter the practical exam.

对于每个学期的实践,课程提纲中有大约15–25个程序。 我们的教授将向我们发送必须在班级WhatsApp组上编写的程序的屏幕截图。 我们必须用流程图编写所有这些程序,这些步骤要在笔记本中执行。 在进行实际考试之前,我们必须将它们全部重新写入另一个称为“记录笔记本”的笔记本中。 然后在进行实际考试之前,我们必须提交两个笔记本。 只有将所有这些都写了两次,我们才可以参加实践考试。

辍学 (Dropping out)

College was very disappointing for me. It was torture. That’s when I decided to learn to code by myself. I became aware of the resources available online. From Harvard University courses to ten dollar Udemy courses, the number of resources available online amazed me.

大学令我非常失望。 酷刑。 那是我决定自己学习编码的时候。 我意识到在线上可用的资源。 从哈佛大学的课程到十美元的Udemy课程,在线可用资源的数量让我感到惊讶。

That’s when I found freeCodeCamp, during my vacation after the first semester of college. I got addicted to it! I spent my whole vacation solving freeCodeCamp challenges. I still remember calling all my friends and relatives right after completing the first project (the Tribute Page). I was so proud of myself. The fact that I had built something on my own made me extremely happy. Even though my first project was very basic and simple, it gave me confidence.

那是我在大学第一学期休假期间找到freeCodeCamp的时候。 我上瘾了! 我整个假期都在解决freeCodeCamp挑战。 我仍然记得在完成第一个项目(“致敬页”)后立即致电我的所有亲朋好友。 我为自己感到骄傲。 我自己建造东西的事实使我感到非常高兴。 即使我的第一个项目非常基础和简单,也给了我信心。

Everyday right after college, I would go to freeCodeCamp and continue learning. After some time, I started bunking classes to do freeCodeCamp. My attendance got so low that I was not allowed to write exams. I had two choices: to continue college and focus on it full time, or to drop out and learn on my own. So I asked myself what exactly college had taught me. I realized it didn’t teach me anything but it gave me courage. Courage to take the road less traveled.

大学毕业后的每一天,我都会去freeCodeCamp继续学习。 一段时间后,我开始将班级做为freeCodeCamp。 我的出勤率太低,以至于我不允许参加考试。 我有两个选择:继续读大学并全职专注于大学,或者独自辍学并学习。 所以我问自己大学到底教了我什么。 我意识到它没有教给我任何东西,但给了我勇气。 勇于走少的路。

寻找工作 (Job hunt)

Convincing my family was by far the hardest part of my journey. After hours and hours of talking with them, I somehow managed to do it. But my parents were still in doubt, since dropping out is not even slightly common in India. I decided to take some time to prepare myself before applying for jobs. During those days, I had a lot of fun. I would work on freeCodeCamp projects, hang out with my cousins, and play badminton. I planned to apply for jobs at the end of 2018.

说服我的家人到目前为止是我旅途中最艰难的部分。 经过几个小时的交谈,我设法做到了。 但是我的父母仍然对此表示怀疑,因为辍学在印度甚至并不常见。 我决定花一些时间准备工作,然后再申请工作。 在那些日子里,我玩得很开心。 我将从事freeCodeCamp项目,与我的表弟一起闲逛,打羽毛球。 我计划在2018年底申请工作。

I already had a decent portfolio (thanks to freeCodeCamp) which really helped my job applications to get noticed. I applied to various companies on AngelList, LinkedIn, Glassdoor etc. Most companies gave me assignments to work on before the interview. About 95% of the companies I applied to didn’t care about my educational qualifications.

我已经有了一个不错的产品组合(由于使用了FreeCodeCamp),这确实帮助我的求职申请受到关注。 我向AngelList,LinkedIn,Glassdoor等多家公司提出了申请。大多数公司在面试前给我分配了工作。 我申请的公司中约有95%不在乎我的学历。

第一份工作 (First job)

After about a month of job searching, I got a call from this company called Unifize. One of the co-founders of the company spoke to me. He made me an offer for a fifteen day trial period, after which if they were satisfied, I would get hired. Two days after the interview, I found this post on his LinkedIn which gave me tears of joy!

在找工作大约一个月后,我接到了一家名为Unifize的公司的电话。 该公司的一位联合创始人对我讲话。 他给了我15天试用期的报价,在此之后,如果他们满意,我就会被录用。 面试两天后,我在他的LinkedIn上找到了这篇帖子 ,这让我流下了喜悦!

After fifteen days, I got the job! It’s been one month since I joined Unifize. I’m loving it!

十五天后,我得到了这份工作! 我加入Unifize已经一个月了。 我喜欢这个!

结论 (Conclusion)

I would really like to thank Quincy Larson and other team members of freeCodeCamp for making such an amazing platform. I would also like to thank the community for always encouraging me on my journey. And finally, I want to thank Ben Merton, Avinash Sultanpur and Lakshman Thatai for giving me an opportunity. Without freeCodeCamp, none of this would have been possible. Thank you so much, guys! :)

我非常感谢Quincy Larson和freeCodeCamp的其他团队提供了如此出色的平台。 我还要感谢社区一直鼓励我的旅程。 最后,我要感谢Ben Merton ,Avinash Sultanpur和Lakshman Thatai给我一次机会。 没有freeCodeCamp,这将是不可能的。 十分感谢大家! :)
