Spoke on Scrimba's Twitter Spaces on, "How to Build a Winning Developer Portfolio."

Shared about what kind of projects make a good developer portfolio (hint: personalise them to show who you are!) and advocated to spend a bit of time writing your "About" bio. Most companies are interested in hiring people, not robots who can code.

I had gone through six rounds of interviews plus a take-home project to secure an incredible offer from a Big Tech company.

However, I was really happy with my current role, where I had a ton of autonomy, growth and interesting challenges. I agonised over the decision.

Secure a 6-figure salary at one of the tech's favourite & well-known companies. Career prestige, financial stability, outstanding bonuses.

Help build up a tiny startup you love. Meaningful work, massive impact, ownership and solid engineering growth.

Which would you have chosen?

I chose to stay. And here's why:
