Probably hard to quantify this, and I know it's better than nothing. But I'm going to start applying soon and just want to know what I should expect. I've done 5 projects for 'normal' businesses, full-stack applications but relatively simple (i.e. a nicely designed frontend with admin dashboard where my client can edit/add products for display on the client, and a backend/database to make that happen). I also recently started working freelance for a tech-focused company with a large app and preexisting codebase, my first time working in an environment like this alongside other developers.
What does this experience count as? Is it much, much worse than having a previous job or not really? Is it better in some ways? I really wouldn't mind if I had to do freelance for 1, 2, even 3 more years: I really enjoy dev and have been able to support myself off freelance work so far; however, I am aiming for stability and full-time employment. I just am wondering how potential employers are even going to view my time spent freelancing.
