Build your career as a Django developer

Software development is one of the few areas that has experienced constant growth in the last decade, and despite the pandemic, the worldwide developer population grew by 500,000 in 2020. Another added benefit of being a software developer is that there are possibilities for flexible and remote working arrangements, due to the work being all computer-based.

Although it can help to have a degree in computer science, it is not a necessity if you want to work as a Django developer. Certifications and experience can be enough to get you a job if you’re passionate and can demonstrate that you’re willing to teach yourself the necessary skills.
