So I started using this app to learn for fun mostly. To do stuff like make use programs for pen and paper games, or just troll programs to annoy friends. But I also figured that I might be able to leverage it into a new career. I figured that using this app would give me a decent start if I want to move forward and certified by a major school/program. So finally on to my question. Does this app certifications carry any weight? What else should I look into to make myself better suited to a tech job? And is a college degree mandatory (my current career paths have not need a degree)? And finally what are some of the most useful programs to learn?
