It’s the difference between building a house from scratch, versus coming to a house that already has the blueprints in place and even a few furnishings that can let you build your dream home faster. You’re still doing the work - and you need to understand how those foundations work, or else you’ll run the risk tearing the whole thing down because you don’t know what you’re doing - but it’s simpler to get the house ready.
🔗 5. You’ll find a way to learn.
🔗 7. Can a junior web developer work remote?
Yes, a junior web developer can absolutely work remotely. Should they? Maybe not. Perhaps, if you’re really interested in it, finding a hybrid junior web developer role would be a wiser decision. Even if you don’t work remotely for your first role or two, there’s a definite possibility for remote work down the line when you’ve reached a higher skill level.
I wholeheartedly agree with Alex. You can work remote, but my advice for new developers is to try to work full-time with a team in-person. If you do, you’ll find yourself learning more and getting more mentorship than you would otherwise. You can always go remote later!
