Resources For New Devs Looking For Work!

I was recently intro’d to a friend of a friend, and they expressed:

I’ve been having a tough time breaking into the industry and getting my first job as a software engineer.
I’d love to chat if you have the time. Thanks in advance.

It’s a little unclear what they wanted to chat about, so my first piece of advice here is to be clear and specific about your ‘ask’ or what you need help with when you reach out to someone.
Anyway! I thought it would be helpful to compile a list of awesome DEV links for junior developers.
