Tech communities keep growing rapidly, and it is good to take advantage of such opportunities.
Back in 2018, we held a tech meetup where we would go through coding challenges and solve them in real-time
During this challenge, we noticed someone good at solving issues in PHP
A few months later, we got a client who needed a simple website done and later realized we needed a tiny, tiny bit of PHP
Guess who we thought about? Yes, the someone who struck us as a PHP nerd, so we called the someone up to help us out.
This engagement led to a permanent job with us to date. We got a new hire, and she got her first job in tech
