Does anyone have any recommendations for how to make the jump into software development? I'm currently doing the 2020 Java MOOC and coding through Automate the Boring Stuff. I'm working on making my github look better, but wanted to know if anyone had any good tips or resources for finally landing that first job.
What sort of programming work are you interested in? Depending on the focus there are different resources that can assist you on your journey. If you are interested in webdev, my recommendation is to work through some of the larger, free projects--e.g. freecodecamp.org, theodinproject.com, open.appacademy.io--which would expose you to many tasks and projects. Aside from that, build things that you would use yourself :) if you have any questions feel free to ask

I have been doing a lot of java and python. I am really interested in application development or maybe something with data analytics. I know building stuff I would use would definitely be helpful and I should get more into doing that and throwing projects on my github. I guess I haven't totally narrowed what direction I'm heading. Any good resources for sites that help you build real projects that could make a portfolio?
