I know that I should not write this message but still.

I over 6 years learn IT : Qt, WinAPI, C/C++, Web.
Over 1.5 years I write code on ExtJS.

I am 23 and I work and study at the same time.
I learn web very hard.
I spend over 300 hours per month near computer for working and learning web.

I have commercial licence Sencha Complete.

But for all time of working and learning I earn only 2550$ from which I pay
895$ for Sencha licence
over 300-500$ for books from Oreilly, Manning and some others.
over 700$ for moving to Master Class of Javascript in Moscow.
So I have nothing for my self.

At the moment I think should I continue learn ExtJS, NodeJS and other technologies.
Cause I can't find good job.
In Russia there are only two cities in which people can earn money - Moscow and St. Petersburg.
All offers to me is like this for 200$ per all month fix ExtJS code of other developers.
I don't want to be a slave and work for nothing.

Over 6 month I learn also NodeJS in hope it will be popular in future and I will find good job.
I a bit rewrite Ext Core and ExtJS 3.4 for NodeJS
here is result
https://github.com/mycoding/Ext-Core-for-NodeJS
Also I did very simple NodeJS chat on Sencha Touch
http://moc-081.ru/chat/
At the moment I develop for myself social network on NodeJS, where I have successfully tested my github project ExtNodeJS.

But for what I all this do?
For having nothing?
At the moment I really think about stop to learn all that cause I have no profit.
I don't want to be a slave and work for 200$ per month.
I want to work for salary from 1500$ per month but nobody offers that to me.

So 6 years of learning IT, studying in University and so on is for nothing.

Sorry me for this sincere message but I stop my working and learning cause nobody needs all I do.

One thing I'm always looking for is people writing blog posts, articles and demo apps/components using our technologies. These tend to get you more widely known in the community and more appealing to people who need work done...

Thank you very much for advice.

But I don't want to develop anything else and get nothing.
If I will not find good job in nearest time I will sell my net book and will never get back to
developing.

When I first started working with Ext JS, I participated in the project in my free time for no pay. I think that investment has paid off for me, and I'm positive it would pay off for you as well. Look to the future - what you do now with pasion is your resume for what you get paid well to do in the future.

1. Register to senchadev.
2. Start focus on business rule
E.g Accounting Solution---> Never end request
Mechanical --> Statical like SPC
3. Register to github to show application..
See my code line then you will have extra shock how much code to build extjs on serious application.
search alien3d.
4. To me i want a programmer which understand business logic rather then told a to z what to do..:-?

Times are tough all over.

I don't want to minimize your concerns, but the expenses you listed all could have been avoided. I'm all for supporting Sencha by buying licenses and authors who write about Sencha by buying their books, but you can learn about Sencha for free online and you don't really need to buy a license unless you resell something. At that point you would obviously hope that the project you sell would bring in enough for your time and the license expense. And unless I'm mistaken, you can develop an application for a company without buying a license as long as you bill them for your time as a programming consultant rather than sell them the application as a product.

The job market sucks in a lot of places throughout the world right now, but it sucks worse for people who have no skills. You've worked hard to develop skills. I don't think you should just throw that out the window.

Make like a musician and get a day job. Keep working at improving your programming skills in your spare time and one day it may pay off for you. Look out for opportunities with small businesses that need custom apps and can't afford to hire a big IT company to develop them. You won't make as much money this way, but you will develop a portfolio and make connections that can lead to referrals with other companies.
