Can A Python Developer Work From Home?

The COVID-19 pandemic has drastically changed how people work, with remote work becoming more common. Python is a popular programming language used in various industries and you might wonder if you can work from home as a Python developer.

In this article, we will explore the answer to this question and I’ll provide tips for you based on my experience – how I went from working as a QA engineer in the office to becoming an entirely remotely working Python developer.

Can A Python Developer Work From Home?

The short answer is YES, a Python developer can work from home. Many companies allow remote work for their developers, and there are also freelance opportunities for those who prefer to work independently.

In fact, remote work can be particularly well-suited for Python developers, who often work on projects that can be completed independently.

However, it is important to note that some employers may require their developers to work on-site, particularly for certain projects that require close collaboration with other team members.

It is important to clarify your employer’s remote work policy before making any assumptions about working from home.

My 3 Unit Tests Tips In Python Django (REALLY Important!)

Good morning! Welcome back, Roberts Greibers here, and in this post, I want to talk about my three unit tests tips that have allowed me to get into writing unit tests in Python Django way faster, in a way more scalable way. 

These are unit tests tips that you will definitely need! 

Because when it comes to building a Python Django project you can’t build anything without having proper test coverage. 

If you like the idea of becoming a Python Django developer, building your own Django projects, writing professional code which is also covered with unit tests – this post is exactly for YOU!

These are tips that I literally use every day when I’m working on new features in Python Django and I wish I knew about them when I was just a beginner Python developer. 

I’ve been working professionally as a Python developer for more than 5 years now – and for the past couple of years, I’ve been working in the fintech industry, building a white label payment gateway product for a local company (ourspell.com) in Riga, Latvia. 

You can read more about my experience on my Linkedin here.

I’m also helping junior developers who are at beginning of their careers (see the LIVE mentoring call here) to take a shortcut and basically use my code examples, techniques I have collected over the years and apply them to their own projects to get their first Python Django job opportunities. 

In the end, what I’m about to give you here in this post is just a small portion of what I share with my clients.

But this will definitely help you write better Python scripts if you’re serious about becoming a Python/Django developer.
