If it got expunged and there was no conviction what's the problem? Just don't mention it on your resume, and if your prospective employer gives you an application they aren't planning on your being a coder for them - you'll be cleaning the office. So there's no box to check about whether you've been arrested before or not (and even if there was you could avoid checking it on the basis of it being expunged)

I'm a freelancer. It would be a pretty bad idea to try to learn the ropes while freelancing. Spend some years working for a dev house or two so you can learn how to do this professionally.

The *only* way to learn how to write software properly professionally is learning from others on the job.
Real programmers use butterflies

Do you feel you fully understand the vision and purpose of the software project you're working on?
Sure you can be told the "what", but do you have the "why"?
