- Software Developer job
I know this one is obvious, but I had to be mentioned. There’s not much to say about it, it’s a normal job with a fixed salary.
2. Starting a blog
Blogging is a really good way to make money not only as a developer. It can be used to tell stories, share experiences with others, or educate people on the subject.
3. Create a youtube channel
On your youtube channel, you can do many things with or without coding. You can post coding tutorials, fun challenges, or even a full course (but there are other options for that)
4. Make a course
Coding/programming is really popular and many people want to learn it, so why don’t offer them a course? You can make a course on the language you know and then sell it on Udemy or Skillshare. Obviously, it’s not guaranteed that a large audience will be interested, but with proper marketing, you can make it work.
5. App/software Development
This one is a no brainer, everyone knows you can develop apps and market them to target a large number of people or even sell them to other companies. As far as this subject goes you can make an app for whatever you want. You can go as far as your imagination takes you.
Freelancing is widely used around the world and that is for a reason, you can make a living with it. In freelancing patience is key, you might not get an order for a while, but there are some things you can do to maximize your chances, like making sure your profile looks professional and offering the right type of skill set.
7. Create a Discord bot
The things you can make with coding is pretty much limitless. You can make a Discord bot and sell it to others with large discord servers. This bot might do stuff like censoring bad words, managing teams, or other things.
8. Write an e-book
You can write an e-book about making apps, websites, and many more. E-books are getting more and more popular everyday, so it’s a great time to start.
9. Make a mod/plugin for a game
Gaming is one of the biggest industries in the world and it’s fun, so why not make a mod for a game you love. One game that comes to mind very quickly is Minecraft, because of the number of things u can make with plugins. Those plugins can also be sold for a good amount of money.
10. Game Development
Yes, for game development you do need a different skill set, but you still need to know to code, plus it’s never too late to start learning.
