Hey everyone. I've been checking out this forum for a while, but this is my first post. I have a question that I hope someone can answer for me.
I have been working on learning C++ for about 2 months now and am beginning to grasp the basics more and more now. I have always been interested in computers and programming, and would like to one day get into the programming field. My question is this: What is the best way to go about getting into this field?
I am 27, work as a welder (a mind-numbing job), and have a family. School would be kinda tough, because it would have to be in the evenings and I'd never see my kids. I know that there aren't really any 'tricks' for getting into a programming job, but I was hoping some of you would have some advice/personal experiences that would help me out.
I am serious about learning C++ and am devoting as much time to it as I can.
Thanks any and all for the advice! :cheesy:
