I have a Microsoft MVP award and I earn thousands of dollars every month as a developer and coding tutor, but I cannot pass these (insert expletive) coding tests.

In 2019, I applied for some merit badge or some freelancing recognition or may be some client was trying to hire me. They said, I have to pass a coding test. and this happened.

This year, again, I was invited to take, a coding test. I knew. The memories of 2019 were still fresh.

And, I once again failed it. There it is. There it is. I managed to squeeze through the first of the four questions. The second one, I tried for 20 minutes, time was running, and then, I realized, no. I wont be able to maek it.

I work as a coding tutor. I work as a software developer. I am sure, there are others out there, who face similar issues.

All I can see is, it’s okay. I am still earning a livelihood, and I work as a coding tutor, teaching people programming.

So, if you cannot pass these (insert expletive) tests, it’s not the end of the world.

I work as a full time freelance coding tutor. Hire me at UpWork or Fiverr or Stack Overflow. My personal website is here. Find more of my art at Behance and Unsplash. Also, I have a Podcast about everyday life. And, a 2nd Podcast, where I talk about freelancing.
