I've been a professional (as in getting paid for it) Full Stack PHP Developer for about 6-7 years now. Completely self-taught in the sense that I've never taken any classes or gotten any certifications in it. While I haven't taken any classes, I've still had plenty of "teachers" along the way: co-workers, forum posters, StackOverflow users, etc., have all helped me learn what I know. I started out working with programmers in an office. I showed some curiosity, interest and then aptitude. They would give !e copies of the code they wrote, and I'd play around with it, change it, see how it broke, and then figure out how to fix it again. I continued learning over time, adding to my skills and knowledge. Eventually, I had a friend "give me my shot" by hiring me on to do professional development even though I didn't have any professional experience at that time. Since then, I've continued learning every day while getting paid to do it. Undoubtedly, I have some gaps in my knowledge, and I know I don't know everything inside and out. But the most important skill to have (in my opinion) is a fearless resolve to take on an assignment or project - even if you don't know how you're going to solve it when you're first starting on it - and have the confidence in your ability to deliver a functioning solution by a deadline. If you say you're going to be able to complete a project, then make sure you do it. In business, no one has time for empty promises, only solutions. I still don't have any development certs. I don't even have an Associate's Degree. Though just last year, I did get SANS GWAPT certified through my current employer.
