Awesome! :) That's great to hear bro. Many people underestimate the potential of self-learning and feel that you -have- to have a fancy piece of paper to represent your abilities. Keep up the good work!

@David Carroll I read your lengthy answer and recall how I got a job offer through a contact via my Linux group after a presentation I did. I held that job for roughly 7 years. It was a terrific learning experience and was the first time I didn't have to go through a recruiter to interview for a role. I also recommend LinkedIn as a starting point for individuals who are starting out in the workforce in order to build connections and find new and exciting opportunities. It's worked for many individuals who are just seeking a role in a new place, first timers, and for those looking for a mentor in their field of expertise. With that said I have not updated mine in years! ๐Ÿ˜…

@DerXred... Thanks for posting a little more about your background. It's interesting to hear that some people struggle to find work in the software development industry. I've been very fortunate to have never experienced this problem in about 20 years of programming. In fact, it's been quite the opposite. I receive many requests each week to interview for new job openings by recruiters via LinkedIn. Interestingly enough, I've never taken a job through a recruiter. However, I'm sure contacting a recruiter who specialized in placing software developers would be a good place to start for someone new in the business. I also recommend you create a LinkedIn profile and begin connecting with other people in the industry. If you don't have many contacts yet, try joining local technology user groups and connecting with other members. Often times, people will check LinkedIn to see how many degrees of separation they have with a job candidate. Sometimes, it only takes seeing a mutual contact for a hiring person to decide to bring someone in for an interview. Also, networking at local user groups can often lead to someone who knows about a job opening that might be suited for an entry level developer. If work experience is something you absolutely need to get your first interview, you might want to consider getting involved with an active open source project. Actually, I recommend this anyway. Best of luck to you with getting started.

Well, you can study things about website protocols, how does it work. What is LAN, MAN, WAN, packets, servers, DNS, get job about that. It is more easier than to become java developer in Google immediately. But still there is PHP, WordPress, plugins and you can learn a lot about IT.

Congratulations! But you should tell us more! :-) The themes that @derXred noticed. The type of job you've got. How was it posible when most of learners here can not get a decent job untill they'll have some experience (pet-projects, portfolio, unpayed internship). What are your perspectives there also? And so on... Thanks in advance!
