How much computer programming experience did you have before starting OzBargain?
Hi Scott, How much computer programming experience did you have before starting OzBargain?
I started programming on a VIC-20 with BASIC so yeah quite a few years :)
After graduating from an engineering degree in computing, I worked mainly as developer / software architect in both startups and established companies. Developing for OzBargain is "scaling down" for me but I enjoyed it nevertheless, i.e. no product-managers demanding crazy designs and project-managers requesting crazy deadlines.
Good to know about Ozbargain. Nowadays, many entrepreneurs start a business without programming experience and background. For one, the skill can be learned if they have the drive. And another reason is the abundance of local and overseas programmers available. In this growing gig economy, you can easily hire app developers, website programmers, UX designers to build the product you need.
