Hey Andrew,

I think I can provide you with plenty of advice as I was in your shoes not so long ago,
can you let me know more about yourself, how old are you, when did you work on your startup, studies, how did you end up coding, when did you start learning, are you learning on your own  etc.,
link to your LinkedIn, Github…

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,
