Okay, so I might be a total n00b with the Code Project bookmarks, but isn't there some functionality that allows you to search or even export the bookmarks? It's just because, I have over eleven pages of bookmarks and going through them one by one is a very tedious process! Am I missing something?
I've been out of work thanks to a layoff for 6 months now. I want to be an entry-level applications developer/programmer within a company, but the last job I had was just a junior version of that which dealt with an obscure language. My skills in relevant languages going into that job were about the same as they were coming out. I've been trying to learn more about programming (to fill the gaps I missed in college) so that I can build a portfolio to show off to employers. I still feel like I'm way off from that point though. Aside from that, I've been applying to jobs online, because I know no other way. I've gotten a few interviews, but they never went past non-technical interview questions.
I only said all the above to answer questions you guys my have when I ask this: how do I network in the industry of computer programming when I have nothing built from before? My previous co-workers can only help for references. Beyond that, I only know college professors in the IT arena. They can't offer much help beyond critiquing my resume. My area (physical location) isn't good for programming jobs unless you have a ton of experience already. I would have moved to a better area if I could've afforded it. The thing is, applying for jobs online is (in most cases) like throwing your resume into a black hole. Especially since I'm applying to places 1-3 towns away most times. I've pumped hours into new cover letters and such only to hear nothing back. This is indeed the most ineffective method to find a job. It took 7 months to find a job like this fresh out of college, and now it's taken just as much fresh out of my last job. I don't know how else to do it though.
I wanted to ask about this, because even when I get a new job, I don't know how I would network from there. I had my last job for close to a year and a half, and didn't do any there.
You can take your time responding to this. This isn't an emergency; I'm living fine off my emergency fund until I find a job. It's just angering me that I don't have the first clue how to do things outside of job boards.
I come from India so things here may well be very different from what you would have at your end.
One thing we must have is patience. IMHO, at any experience level, no one can claim getting a job in a day. It depends on market state, if companies really want someone with your skills and if they are ready to afford you.
To look for jobs, I rely on job hunt websites and only that. Takes a while but I have been fortunate enough thus far. Other than that, you could try out linked in. Just be ready to get spam type requests from certain recruiters. Also, please avoid those who think it is same as Facebook. There used to be a job forum here but I can't seem to find it any more. There is one at SO too if want to give a try.
Meanwhile, I would recommend you to write some tools and utilities show casing your skills and put them as articles here or at CodePlex or anywhere you would like. Make sure employers can access it if they want to.
You also mentioned about your location. I would prefer clarifying my stand on relocation if necessary up front.
Again, be patient and all the best.

I tried this a few years ago. It was nothing but senior citizens bragging about how may anti-virus programs they had running, or how many times a week they defragmented their hard drive. It wasn't the type of 'user group' I was expecting. I never went back.
I put myself on LinkedIn in order to find and connect with colleagues from earlier jobs. A nice side-effect of my LinkedIn presence was being contacted by recruiters who work permanently at specific companies. Even though I'm not looking to move, some of these contacts have proved to be quite useful because of my mutual interest in those companies. You may want to consider doing the same.
