I follow your comments regularly and I must say that I am amazed by your character! If you happen to come in Greece pm me, if I am in a 4h range, I'll drop by and buy you beers! :-)
international corps are the worst. if you have a CS degree and you only know how to open Visual Studio you'll get the job. also Microsoft dominate the market in Turkey, and if you are a Python developer your only chance are %3-4 of the industry.
i never heard about that BS Degree requirement on visa's which i don't have. i dropped out from university, Bachelor of arts in the last year.damn!
Also you can play DV lottery. It's a small chance (1.5%) but still larger than zero.
Argentina is a nice place to live, if you work remotely for North American companies. The local economy is a mess at the moment, you probably don't want to bother with that.
Turkish citizens can enter Argentina without a visa and anyone without a criminal record can be naturalized as a citizen after two years of legal or irregular (undocumented/illegal) residence. (The naturalization law dates to 1869.)
Do talk to a local attorney that specializes in naturalization for irregular migrants, do buy a round trip ticket, do have a hotel/hostel/Airbnb booked for the duration of your imaginary stay and don't show up at border control with anything a tourist wouldn't carry. If that doesn't work, I understand a lot of Chinese and Koreans just walk over from Paraguay.
It will be difficult to bring dollars into the country if you can't leave for two years and physically carry them, but the president-elect will likely remove currency controls soon. If not, you can use Bitcoin.
Though, if you want to start a company there are less painful places to do it than Argentina...
Full disclosure: I'm not Argentine or an illegal immigrant to Argentina, so do check with people who know more
i know a guy too living like that, he make stock videos and he travelled around 10 countries in 2 years and he is in cambodia now. fantastic place. he said he want to stay there at least one year to discover more.
it's might be compelling to live a nomad life, it has extra effort to keep things tidy and clear. it's already hard thing to left everything about your behind, but maybe i'd consider living a nomad life few years later but first i need to find peace in my mind
I am happy to share the ups and downs of it, and give you tips in how to keep it manageable, and how to keep working as a dev.

Basically read this guy http://www.kalzumeus.com/2011/10/28/dont-call-yourself-a-pro... and follow the clique.
You can make it if you try hard enough.
you're right but i can't pretend to be someone im not. im not a rockstar dev you know there are lot of them.
yes i'm looking depressed now but im a burning fire in me work hard and joy. trying to find a place to work with good people and good purpose
Note that my advice is rational and completely unironic. It is rational to follow the clique if you want to succeed in tech.
I act like that too.
Not really. Your posts in this discussion just seem unnecessarily... angry?
