Now today I love programming, and you can actually get in the area professionally. However, I've been looking at some of the listings and they seem to have super HIGH END requirements which look nearly impossible to accomplish.
So what do I need to do in order to reach a goal like that? Getting to the stage where I can be comfortable enough to apply for a Software Development job without feeling like you won't have a clue what you're doing? I know I could have started way younger, but I'm not old yet. I'm pretty sure that I should be going back to school, which I'm totally okay with. What I'm not sure about is what sort of subjects I'm going to need to take so that I have the well rounded knowledge programmers need.
As for now, I know this much:
- I need to program a huge amount on my own, in my own time.
- I need to have a logical brain, knowledge alone isn't enough.
- I preferably need to learn multiple languages to a standard where I can use them on a somewhat competent basis.
- I should learn Advanced Math and perhaps Physics (?).
- I may need to learn more about how languages work technically?
As you can probably guess, I'll be heading to University after college, so the subjects I take in college are basically going to be for support. I'd love for you guys to help me out, I'm totally ready to dedicate to this.
Thanks in advance.
