@JacobMason83 I haven't done this myself yet | nothing I'm aware of right of the bat, it all depends on what you are interested in, what your skills are and other stuff. I know that FCC has had a cool thing where if you complete all their courses/certs you can apply to help an non-profit.

perhaps there's a project you like already that you feel you want to help out with. I've read somewhere that one could start with something simple like fixing a typo in the docs to get the practice of doing a pull request to ease into it.

You could search Github also. I remember I wanted to check out open source projects related to Earth science a year or two ago and it wasn't all that hard to find. I chickened out because I didn't I could help out with anything.

@jgonggrijp What would work for you, for example?

@JacobMason83
ok i have been searching github, i went to a bootcamp for mern stack, but i keep running into jobs that want experience upfront for jr or entry level positions. but i have had interviews but i was either too green or beat out by someone with more experience

I'm only in programming as a hobby, but I follow several programming oriented subreddits on Reddit and from what I can tell, you need persistence, time and luck. Also geography can be a factor
It's often said that a good start is a portfolio page with at least one project (besides the portfolio) that you can show off your skills

be it UI/UX, language / framework.

Also to have your stuff on GitHub iirc

check this out and tell me what you think its www.jacobmason.me

@JakobPapirov

Everyone's a critic, they say, so don't take anything I saw as Truth.

I took a few moments to check the site and generally I like it!. It's clean, simple, gets the point across. I like the navigation specifically.

A little bit of feedback I'm not a native English speaker but I wonder if the intro is a bit long and I believe I found two typos/grammar issues
"and I acceled at it, and caught on to everything easily, but put in the work to fully understand it as well. "

Also the image on my screen looks a bit squished, I'm not sure..

Something I'd suggest is to perhaps add a paragraph describing what you are interested in/looking for?

I've had a contact form on a previous version of my site and it attracted spam. Admittedly, I didn't have any form validation at the time - not sure if it would have helped though

when I check company sites quite a lot of them have "James [at] company" written out, instead of james@company.com . Perhaps it's to combat bots that collect email addresses idk
Jake
@JacobMason83
yeah it did thank you for that , any feedback i can get will help me make the site alot better. i do appreciate it. i did buy the domain from google, i would have to check and see if i could do email addresses or not with it

hi

@JakobPapirov
@JacobMason83 I bought G Suite to get the domain email. I had to change some records with my DNS(?) where I bought my domain, I've only done it once, but it was quite straightforward iirc. I'm thinking of switching to protonmail instead, for their 1st tier paid account I'd get at least one domain email. Haven't done more research into it yet. I don't use the other G suite services anyway.
G Suite offers email aliases which is convinient, idk if protonmail offers that
I'm glad I could be of help!

@JacobMason83
@JakobPapirov true i saw that but i don't believe i payed for that option ill have k take a look

@JakobPapirov
@Mohsin-mehraj I understand what you mean now

Well, I would say that it actually depends on you as a person and on your level of experience. When simply watching something you are not actually building anything. On the other hand it can teach you what's possible and give you ideas on what to create yourself.

if you instead decide to build something from scratch then you will learn-by-doing and that can be a very good of learning something as you will have to solve problems one at the time. The downside is if your idea is too big or if you know too little and will spend more time searching/asking for help than building

if you are thinking about presenting something as your own work, then you can simply state that you followed x tutorial or if you made changes, then you got inspired by x tutorial
i think

Jakob Papirov
@JakobPapirov
if search didn't find anything, then I don't know, sorry
Perhaps you'll have better luck finding an applicable slack ?

@gdobato
im mainly interested in BLE, i will try to search for specific topics, thanks! :)
Jakob Papirov
@JakobPapirov
perhaps this can help you https://www.reddit.com/r/cpp/ ?
subreddits usually have sidebar links to more niche sub's

@gdobato I don't know of a room dedicated to embedded, but I know that @dshamany and @nadiaschutz are interested in that topic, too. Maybe you can start a channel about embedded programming with them.
Gabriel Dobato
@gdobato
Hello, @jgonggrijp thanks for the feedback :). Yeah that would be a great idea.

@JakobPapirov
@besartamarkaj there's a Django channel where you might get help quicker
I'm learning Django myself, but I haven't come across that error myself yet.

@besartamarkaj
@JakobPapirov Thank you.

@besartamarkaj I just realised that pythondev.slack.com is probably even better for you
I don't remember how I got on there in the first place

hi guys. I need some help with a layout concept. I'd like a layout with a sidebar that is fixed and a content area that is not removed out of flow when the sidebar has a position fixed. My current issue is that once the sidebar is set to position fixed, the content area is removed out of flow. I tried using margin to set it back to normal flow but I thought that is not right. Does anyone have a right way of doing this? help is needed.
