Agreed on time management – Having excellent resources is also (imo) key to making it in web dev without a CS degree. Basically anything in tech, if you can do it and you can do it well, you can find a job. Source: I was a Communications (english/psychology) major and now work in web dev.

I am an IT graduate and so far my work experience is all about technical support. I want to try software development particularly web development. My question is what should I learn first? PHP or Javascript? I have no prior programming experience. Thanks!

Interesting video, although it does seem to concentrate more on front-end development (which naturally lends itself to portfolio pieces). I'm aiming for at a backend development career, so we'll see how far I can go without a degree 🙂

oh yeah. I was thinking about unsubscribing a week ago but decided to give you one more chance and if you don't upload good video in few weeks I will definitely unsubscribe BUT there it is – good video about topic many young people are looking for. Other older videos this year were completely useless for many people. Keep it up!
