A Very Important Tool A Computer Programmer Must Have
We are now facing the age of the internet. Everyone who wants to ride on this must do something to maximize your profit.
If you want your name to stand out in the crowd, then follow these simple steps:
1. Build your own website.
Building a website today is very cheap. It will only cost you around $7.95/month for webhosting and $9.95/year for a domain name. Some webhosting company cost only $6.95/month, but I do not recommend them because after a year when they saw the increase of traffic on your website they will offer you again a higher plan.
For the best webhosting choose Hostgator.com. They have a good review and I highly recommend them.
If you need help to setup your website, send me an email at the Contact page.
2. Sign-up for PayPal account.
The purpose of this article is to drive you in making money online as a freelancer. So, most of the companies like RentACoder and Elance are using PayPal to send money to their coder. You can also use PayPal to send payments online. Example, if you want to hire a coder in RentACoder.com for subcontracting then you will most likely need a PayPal account.
It is very easy to setup and all you need is a credit card.
3. A Book(s).
This is very important if you are starting to become a programmer. Although you can search for tutorial in the internet but because of so much information and it is sometimes misleading in your part, you need a guide which will teach you from beginning. Below are my recommended books:
Beginning VB 2008 Databases: From Novice to Professional (Beginning: from Novice to Professional)Visual Basic 6.0
Microsoft Visual Basic 6.0 Professional Step by Step, Second Edition (Step By Step (Redmond, Wash.).)PHP
Beginning PHP and MySQL: From Novice to Professional, Third EditionJAVA
Head First Java, 2nd Edition
