Where to find volunteer positions for developers?

Hi!


This is my first post, so first of all sorry if the question was already made. I searched, but couldn't find anything.


Context: I'm a newbie and I am looking to gain experience in a more professional environment than just my 'mock' apps. I thought that I could do it by a being volunteer as a Developer on Outsystems. I would win experience, and some charity of sorts would get free help.


Is there such a thing? Where can I find more info on it?


Thank You & Regards,

Ivan

Hi Ivan,

Maybe it is an idea to see if you can enroll in the OutSystems Developer school program.

https://www.outsystems.com/events/developer-school/

Partners do get emails of people that went to this program, to look for new employees.

Hi Ivan,

Though I understand your desire for practice work, but if you are newbie as you say, how much value do you think you can add to a project? Most likely, you'll need extensive help of a senior and/or will make bugs or produce suboptimal code.

Additionally, OutSystems is an expensive product. Charities don't use it, it's used in Enterprise businesses. And they wouldn't want to "hire" a volunteer that's not guaranteed to commit, and has no coding experience.
