Wow, @Dave and @Dan agreeing. That would be enough to convince me.
I agree, dev isn't something you can just learn and enjoy. It would be like me buying a pencil and notepad, doing a course on drawing and thinking I'll be an illustrator.
If you are an analytical person who can work out how another person problem solves, then integrate that into your method, go for it. Otherwise you'll probably end up on cookie cutter, process driven projects that won't stimulate your creative side.

Thought this might interest the AGDA members.
DragonBill has just partnered with AGDA, offering their members a free upgrade. I'm pretty happy about this, it's our biggest partnership so far, more in the pipeline!

Then there's the old "if you do a good job this first time, there'll be plenty more work". Fell for that when I was starting out. Good experience in learning to detect bs and stand up for yourself, still sucks though.

Being on a holiday visa shouldn't hurt you. I've worked with plenty of Brits on holidays here. Check out the recruitment agencies - most of the agents seem to come from the UK in my experience.

Hey @Pscysm - my first thought when I looked at your landing page is...what exactly is this? Granted, I have some idea because I've seen what you've been saying about it on the forum. But even so, I find myself unsure when looking at your landing page. I can't grasp what Dragonbill is and why I want it.
The content in the red bar is useful for expanding on what's being offered, but it's secondary information. I'd like to see the primary message upfront to feel confident that I understand what I'm signing up for is something I'm actually interested in.*
*caveat, I'm not necessarily your target market, but it was easier to write this in first person

Hey @Pscysm It's changed a bit and now will work by users adding funds (via PayPal or Stripe) to an account before paying for items.
I'm not 100% confident that it's the right way to go (I have suggested getting away from the payment side of things and focusing on the shopping element) but I'm going to prototype it up and see what it looks like.
