Man, that’s amazing! Congratulations!
I just started TOP and I’m really hoping to achieve something similar, thank you for the inspiration!

Congratulations! Happy for you.

I know this was months ago, but I’d like to ask just one thing:

when you began applying for jobs, did you just have TOP course on your resume or you did something else (like freelancing)???

Congrats, @akaswen !!! :slight_smile:

Hey Jesus, sorry for the delayed response. Before I finished TOP, I made a tiny web app for my dad, and for the final project of TOP, I made an application for a friend of mine. Because of that, I listed that I had like 1 or 2 months of freelancing experience, which I then listed on my cv. So the sum total was TOP and that little freelance experience. But everything was on github so they could see my code and see that I was able to build web apps, which I think is the biggest part.
