Very good class to help you understand if you want to get into programming as a career or not. The instructor has some really good tips and ideas to "get your feet wet". The deeper suggestions he has around interviewing and where to look for jobs would be a good starting place to start your research to see if it is a viable career in your area.
This class is well structured and provided a good insight into all aspects of becoming a programmer. Mr Frick, do you have any thoughts on cloud computing?
