Improving Your Skills by Freelancing

One of the best ways to improve your skills as a developer is to work to a purpose; that is, work to achieve something.

If you attempt to study web development, you will probably find that if you don’t work towards a goal there is little motivation to keep you going. Building cookie-cutter websites and rehashing old solutions is not very inspiring.

Try taking on some freelancing jobs and getting out of your comfort zone. You will be more focused on a goal, and instead of “learning something”, you are “achieving something”.

The learning will come as an experience, which will stay with you much longer.

An excellent place to start freelancing is – pick a project, bid on it, and if you are chosen, you have a chance to prove yourself.

Try it out and see how it will help you focus and improve your skills.
