I’ve been thinking about how will I use my skills should I choose to do this programming thing on the internet? I know that project treehouse has a thing where once you complete it they put you in touch with charity groups in need of help. I also realize somehow you need to drive traffic to your information in order to get business. Beyond that is a mystery.
So far my plan looks like this …
- Keep day job.
- Learn to use github, because git is great…and your resume these days.
- Learn to program in ruby on rails.
- Learn to program in symfony2.
- Keep adding different java flavors
- Maybe get into objective-c for apple applications or learn one of the translator languages which will public my app to all mobile devices for me.
- Instant fame and riches.
- Maybe do something like this over weekends … SoFetch
- Quit day job.
- Work from home, the coffee shop or anywhere in the world I end up.
- Only work when I want, like a slow weekend or 3 AM, after lunch, not at all for a week.
I have a feeling that I’m missing something in between “learn to” & “instant fame”…which by the way, I’d prefer not to be famous – but it seems like a good end game.
So I’m still exploring what people are talking about…
