Dear LRUG,

A few months ago I posted here looking for job postings for a Junior 
developer role. As a result of the replies, I ended up having a few 
interviews with a few good companies, who liked me, thought I had 
potential, but were dissuaded by my lack of commercial experience.

Those companies told me reapply in due course once I had the 
prerequisite experience. Having worked on a startup of my own, and 
having an 80 hour a week work ethic, I felt obviously that I would be 
able to make up the shortfall caused by this.

Basically what I'm asking is are there any roles for people without 
commercial experience, but who are prepared to put the work in? My 
Github shows that I am industrious and don't necessarily need my hand 
held to the same extent as others. Any advice on this front would be 
much appreciated.

Many thanks,
