Story of How I Got My Programming Job With No Expereince

Short and Sweet this is specifically what i did to get my first programming job. I had no prior experience.

I now work as a Web developer and am still continuing my education.
I am self taught and there is still much to learn as I expand not only my knowledge of the web but also into mobile.

Anyways I hope this is helpful for any general questions about how specifically to get a programming job with no experience. It happens all the time. And i think if you are a self taught programmer then you will have some good advantages here as well.

Things I wish I knew when I started Programming

Ex-Google Tech Lead tells you what he wishes he knew before he began coding. Get your free audio book:

We had an interesting discussion here on Javascript vs Python as a first language. While both are decent, I'd probably lean towards learning Javascript first and to then move into Python/PHP (backend) second, then perhaps into mobile like Kotlin/Swift (with memory management & design) if so motivated. For a beginner, having that immediate visual feedback is necessary to keep motivated. My primary concern with Python is that it even though it is a more solid language it is also command-line only, and that's just plain boring for most people who have no idea why they'd even want to create a command-line program, much less what a command-line is. What do you think?
