Fastest way to get a programming job
Hello everyone I am a student at university. I don't study programming, I study medicine. Both are my passions but I eventually decided to study medicine at university and study programming on my own, in my free time. What I now want to know is what steps does one need to take in order to land a programming job as quickly and efficiently as possible. The reason for that is because I am living alone with my father and we have financial difficulties. Therefore, I need to help my father with his work and this makes me miss lectures at university and takes my free time from learning programming and medicine; my 2 major passions. Hence I want to know what steps I need to take in order to make money from programming, so I can support my father, without having to work with him (because his work is tedious and we don't gain much money off of it). I cannot make money off of my medical studies, since I'm not a doctor yet. The language that I'm currently studying is Python. This is also the language that I know the most. I know very little of programming languages like Java, C, C++, etc. One of the things that I wonder is if I need to learn other languages too. And if so, which one(s)? My main goal is to efficiently make money off of programming so I can support myself and my father. It doesn't matter much to me in what field I will be programming. So to summarize: my main question is: what are the steps that I need to take to be able to efficiently make money off of Python or any other scripting/programming language? Lastly, I want to express my gratitude to SoloLearn for being an amazing and free resource to learn scripting and programming languages. It's resources like SoloLearn that are such a big help to me, as I cannot afford to pay for any programming book. So thank you very much SoloLearn for the free resources and not unimportant: also thank you to this amazing SoloLearn community. Very often, I have learned so much from the comments of people on the lessons. Thank you in Advance.
