300,000 Downloads and a Few Mistakes: My Journey as an Android App Developer 11/03/2023 ~ Views: 764
Around 2010, I had a lot of ideas which I wanted to implement as mobile apps. So, for me, it was easiest to do that with Android and Java programming languages. I had the tools and free time, so I made a few apps and games. They were published on Google Play at the time, but later, after a few years, they were removed because I didn't have time to update/upgrade them. In total, those apps had around 300,000 downloads, and I did some interviews for web portals to present my apps. There was also some money from South Korean Telecom and from some advertising platforms at the time. It was a nice experience.

At that time, I considered switching my career from .NET and ASP.NET to Android development. I applied for a few jobs at local companies and had a few interviews in one popular company. However, after the second interview, I quit! It was a really confusing experience because I was interviewed by 5-6 people at the same time. They all asked some questions, and the most confusing part was when one person asked a question and then the fourth person asked the same question. It happened a few times, and I realized that they weren't listening to me very well. They gave me a homework task, which I completed, and in the second interview, the same thing happened: they asked the same questions from a few people. After a few days, I received a reply and an offer for another position, but I quit because my interview experience was not normal. I didn't feel that this company was good enough for me. Later, I also quit Android development."

My apps are still available on:
