How do I know if I'm good at programming if I'm self-taught?
What do I need to know/be good at to get a job programming? How much do I need to know before I say I can put 'can program [language]' on my resume? Is the SoloLearn certificate good enough or just a start? Edit: I guess my real question is, 'how does a person self-teaching themself to program know that they are good enough at programming with a certain language to be able to apply for and get a programming job?' Edit2: I've seen this come up a lot, so you ac answer this question as well: How does a self-taught (no college degree) programmer get a job? What do they need to show that makes them look as competent as a degree programmer? Or does a programmer basically always need a degree? I know there probably isn't just one, clear answer. Thank you! :D
