32. How to Build a Portfolio with NO Work Experience & "Nothing to Put There" - Step by Step Formula
http://advancedbeginnerchallenge.com – I built a course to get your first job in web development, or upgrade from Junior to mid-level! How do you build a portfolio and website with NO work experience? This episode is for ALL BEGINNERS. MUST LISTEN. Your personal brand is your biggest competitive advantage. You must start building it, NOW. PS - If you're a follower of Marco Arment, and you don't like talking about "braaaaandds" b/c Marco makes fun of it, I'll tell you this, do what he DOES not what he SAYS. He is laughing all the way to the bank, off the back of his ability to build brands. So you decide. Note - I forgot to mention that there will be another video where we go over how to write blog posts, so don't worry about the "dummy blog posts" for now. Sorry for not mentioning that here!

How To Build Your FIRST Web App (Without Knowing Anything)
http://advancedbeginnerchallenge.com – I built a course to get your first job in web development, or upgrade from Junior to mid-level! If you prefer to watch this episode you can do that here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SxdrmwakXGo Building your first web application can be extremely complicated. BUT, it's easier if you break it down into "chunks" and then execute those. In this video I go over exactly how I break down web apps into "chunks" that represent tutorials, then you can go google those tutorials and simply execute them, combining the tutorials together. This method has made it possible for multiple students of mine, brand new to development, to build their first app. Connect with me on instagram @dainmiller or @starthere.fm

Learn A Framework, Not A Language
http://advancedbeginnerchallenge.com – I built a course to get your first job in web development, or upgrade from Junior to mid-level! Learn a framework not a language. The framework is a trojan horse for the knowledge you need of the language. - Learn Rails, not Ruby. - Learn Django, not Python. - Learn Angular/Ember/React+Redux, not JavaScript. - Learn Phoenix, not Elixir. - Learn .NET, not C#. - Learn Laravel, not PHP. - Etc etc. A few notes from today's episode: 1. Look around at the industry you want to be in, what are other people spending 80% of their time on, that is only getting them 20% of the result? Hard to identify what exactly that is? If you have trouble with this, just identify what people spend 80% of their time on, and do the opposite. This is what makes people massively successful, mark my words. 2. SKIP OVER what you identified in #1. SKIP OVER what most people are doing. This is taking MASSIVE ACTION. Massive action is relative. Relative to the rest of humans on this planet, are you taking massive action? Here are some examples of taking massive action: - Learn a Framework: Deploy ANYTHING to Heroku (that only you will see) by tomorrow. No excuses. - Learn a Framework: complete 1 page that has some functionality you agree with yourself ahead of time, deploy it to Heroku, then send to 2 friends on Facebook and ask them to try and use it. - Go start interviewing for jobs, NOW. WHY WAIT? Stop sitting around and take action. - Want to start a podcast? Launch a crappy first version by TOMORROW. - Want to write a book? Launch a crappy first eBook by next Monday. No matter what. Stop trying to make everything perfect on the first try, just focus on making stuff good on the second try. Your first handful of job interviews, book chapters, podcast episodes, programming projects - they will all SUCK on the first go around. BE OKAY WITH THAT and push forward and keep going and you will advance beyond the crowd. Most people either A) get obsessed with making the first version perfect and never go anywhere, or B) feel so depressed from their first version being a failure they never go anywhere. SKIP OVER ALL THAT, and get somewhere. Or don't, and continue to take small actions, and remain in limbo for the rest of your life. This is my challenge for you. Are you up for it? Tweet me @dainmiller and let me know you are taking massive actions. Ask me questions on the best massive action to take. I will hold you accountable. You aren't allowed to do small things if you are following me. I will make sure you are accountable. Go to twitter and follow me and let's do this.

http://advancedbeginnerchallenge.com – I built a course to get your first job in web development, or upgrade from Junior to mid-level. How to become an advanced beginner 1.

25. The Secret to Project Management, Finding a Client, and Learning Comp-Sci as a Self Educator
http://advancedbeginnerchallenge.com – I built a course to get your first job in web development, or upgrade from Junior to mid-level. Resources: - Ruby on Rails episode 1 mentioned many times in episode here https://soundcloud.com/starthere-rubyonrails/1-bootcamps-vs-learning-solo-how-to-begin-with-ruby-on-rails - Discrete Mathematics Textbook. For this one guys, there are like 40 options on Amazon. So what you want to do is find a book called "Discreet Mathematics and Its Applications". Unfortunately though some versions of this book cost $240 USD, but the good news is some only cost 40 cents. So it varies wildly, and really you can select any version at whatever price you can afford. Here is a direct amazon link to the search result where you can select from the price point you can afford. http://bit.ly/search-for-discrete-text-on-amazon - Analysis of Algorithms. For this one, I recommend this book http://www.amazon.com/Introduction-Algorithms-3rd-MIT-Press/dp/0262033844/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1463417791&sr=8-3&keywords=analysis+of+algorithms which is about $60 USD.

1. Start Here to Build a Career in Web Development
http://advancedbeginnerchallenge.com – I built a course to get your first job in web development, or upgrade from Junior to mid-level! Tasks - Read Steps 1 & 2 from DevelopAJob.com This site is a good overview of web development. The author provides additional resources some of which you can purchase. We don't believe you need to pay for an education in web development so bypass those resources. In step 2 we'd ask you to skip the Build Your First Website section. Our second resource provides a more thorough lesson. - Work through Lesson 1, Building Your First Web Page, from learn.shayhowe.com Shay's lesson is a crash course and a fantastic introduction to HTML and CSS. Technically, it's a lesson about building for the front-end but we think every web developer should know these things. - Talk to Us Please tell us why you want to be a web developer. What are your reasons and what job are you switching from? Leave us a comment below. If you have questions about web dev please ask away. You can also Contact us directly.
