I have just finished my Advanced Diploma in Computing, and I am currently looking for an internship.
I live in Libya and Software Development here is dead. If I stay here, then I am certainly doomed. I would have no choice but to become one of those Code Zombies who write code without any craftsmanship, or give it all up and find something else to do.
I have passion and enthusiasm for programming and I don’t want to give it up. But a junior needs to work in a healthy environment and get some real mentorship to be a real craftsman, and that is what I am looking for.
I want to get experience and mentorship as I don’t care much about money at this stage of my career. I would even be happy if they paid me just enough to survive while providing me with mentorship.
Is it possible to get an internship in USA or Canada? Please, any advice or ideas to help me out of my dilemma?
