I am trying to pivot towards programming or developer using Python. I have taken a Microsoft certification in Python. This certification is for introduction to programming using python although I learned OOP concepts as well. I have some programming experience in programming with Java but this was a long time ago. The reason I did not keep developing is that I was very comfortable at this company and they did not want a Java developer at the time plus as a System Analyst I would write code based on projects or needs. Now, I am looking to change careers and I am finding out it is not easy. I am also learning Django to get into web development. Please if you know of any company that is looking for a candidate like me. Thanks.
Hi Victor! I've been working professionally in primarily Python for several years. One of the best ways I've found to showcase your skills to a company is to have a personal project or two that you can use as your portfolio. Building a simple website with Django or Flask as you learn web development sounds like a great way to do that. You should also be sure to highlight some of the problems you were able to help solve with programming at your other company- that's a great sign. Good luck!
