So I have recently been teaching myself to code in various languages in order to create some responsive and attractive websites. I am growing in my abilities and could happily build some smaller simpler websites.
My question is whether there is a best way to gain some exposure to freelancing in some smaller projects maybe even as part of a team? I guess the ideal scenario here is just to have that extra layer of first of all credibility whilst you gain first pieces of work, but also a layer of safety with some slightly more experienced heads checking the output of my work.
It would be great to be able to confidently try my hand at some better work then have it reviewed professionally without risking any reputation - of course I could take this on myself and maybe get a functioning website of some complexity but if the code is a little clunky or not well future-proofed its still a future reputation risk.
Any remote/freelance projects/employers of note anyone can recommend? (I know of the likes of upwork/freelancer but feel these sites are massively over-subscribed with a lot of noise and not much really happening, plus lack that layer of cover I am really after)
