This is the post about why and how I started my freelancing career as a software engineer.
Even though I had good grades in math and good computer skills I have pursued sales and project management path after finishing university in 2013. I have worked for nearly four years for different companies on head of sales and project management roles. I have worked with 50+ clients from different countries with 4 different companies in Ukraine.
My first Python project was CRUD stock app with Flask and MySQL.
I love programming for number of reasons: ability to use my analytical thinking, create meaningful projects, ability to work from home and spend more time with my wife and my family.
I was getting tired from the routine work on my PM and VP of sales routine. All my free time I dedicated to learning programming and making projects. I had a friend designer with whom we made a bunch of design and UX projects. For me UX is quite interesting area, I took several courses on UX mastery and I have very good background in it, but nevertheless I love programming more.
