Just wondering if you should consider doing a course (online or onsite) in web development, maybe a short introductory course which would give you a feel for whats involved.
There are also a lot of resources available on youtube, vimeo etc which would help you do a basic website quickly - again just to get a feel for whats involved.
In Australia with our professional migration scheme, there is definitely no shortage of developers which can make it hard starting off. But then again it's always been hard finding that first real job.
1. I'd do a course, 1-2 years part time. This will show you are serious. (but don't wait to look for a job)
2. Start cutting the code and learning how the nuts and bolts work. Web development is good in the respect that you can demonstrate your skills.
3. Once you have the skills, take any programming job you can get, regardless of wage.
4. A lot of development teams have more axillary staff than actual developers, QA, client services, sales and marketing. So depending on your previous experience, you may be able to get into the industry while training up. This would be your best option.
We started planning for the next unofficial GIT Forum Members meetup of CodeProject in India. Those who want to take participation, are requested to follow the thread: GIT Meetup - II[^] and vote for the preferred time and location.
I promise this is not an ad -- this is a FREE event -- just in case there's anyone who reads this site who is in Los Angeles and wants to come to an interesting discussion about the Japan Fukushima disaster.
Japan's Reactors and the Realities of Radiation Poisoning
UCLA Professor William McBride answers your questions about radiation poisoning in the aftermath of the Fukushima Daiichi crisis. Prof. McBride is an expert in radiation’s effects on the human body. This open-ended discussion will get you talking about radiation and health, sort fact from fiction, and spark conversations about the long-haul societal implications of nuclear energy.

I'd love to attend, but the commute is rather extreme. If they'd care to reprise the event in a different locale, there's a dandy microbrewery located at the Colorado Belle Casino in Laughlin, NV. Rooms are $19, and I'm sure the brewmaster can be talked into hosting the event; he let Shog9, his lady and me drink there one night, so I know he's fairly tolerant. Just don't plan it for next weekend, as we'll be hosting 80,000 bikers out for a few days of R&R, and the traffic gets a little challenging to navigate.
Today 5 of active GIT members celebrated the CodeProject meetup in Lonavala, near to Pune, India. Myself (Kunal), Abhijit, Abhishek, Ankur and SChristmas attended it. We really enjoyed the CP unofficial get-together there. From the start to end it was really awesome. Discussions and some of the photos are available in GIT Forum. Many more to come.
BTW, it was the members initiative to do this. I appreciate all who attended it.
We had a long discussion and planning in GIT forum 2-3 months in advance and I did never know about this "Get Together" forum. Hence missed to publish it here. BTW, that was our first CodeProject meetup. We will surely inform here next time.
Or did you mean to say what is this obviously someone wanted to get the first post which forever brands him/her as a twat for not posting something intelligible and you for not using a keyboard properly.
Never underestimate the power of human stupidity
