However, if you cannot afford to spend years in college before you begin your programming career, you may also gain knowledge of computer programming from software developers or teach yourself computer programming using reasonably priced textbooks, training courses or software developer mentoring programs.

In this article I will show you how to become a computer programmer without having to invest a fortune in a college education. Getting your first computer programming job without a computer science college education is not as hard as you may think.

This is because when it comes to computer programming, employers put more emphasis on your ability to write good quality code than on your educational credentials. Many professional computer programmers have taken advantage of this to forgo college and focus on developing their computer programming skills to the best of their ability. After you are hired as a computer programmer, employers also expect you to document and design software applications and write good quality code, regardless of how or where you learnt computer programming!

One of the best kept secrets of becoming a computer programmer is that you can learn computer programming at home and advance your skills to a competent level without first getting a programming job. When I realized this more than 15 years ago … that I could just buy a computer, connect it to the internet and learn as much computer programming as I wanted without having to get a job first, I was so excited … that I went ahead and did just that!

Of course, I also realized that I still needed to invest in computer programming books, buy software development tools and invest in software developer training packages that would allow me to learn programming on my own. However, I figured out that the total cost of my investments in computer programming training would pale in comparison to how much I would earn as a computer programmer or how much more time it would take me to study medicine or law in college.

So, I took my developer training and got a well-paying contract programming job within 6 months, an opportunity I knew I could not have had with any other high paying professional career. How to Get a Computer Programming Job without a College Degree What you need to emphasize when looking for a computer programming job is your software development knowledge, coding skills and any programming experience that is related to the job you are interviewing for.

In other words, you have to prove to prospective employers or hiring managers that you can do the job well if given the chance. Make sure that your prospective employer sees the list of software development projects you have completed by yourself, live web sites or software application programs you designed or coded as well as the list of current or future projects you are planning to work on.

Show your prospective employer that you have a beautiful mind and make the case that you are an asset to any one who hires you! Where Does This Leave You? This leaves you without an excuse for not taking action.

I am granting you the opportunity to purse your interests, your aspirations and your personal desire to learn or master computer programming. I take pride in being an computer programmer mentor, software developer mentor or IT Consultant who has worked with people that have overcome all sorts of obstacles, personal situations or challenges to begin their computer programming career.

If you gain a lot of practical computer programming skills or real-world, hands-on programming experience then your software development career will go into overdrive. It will shave years off your learning curve by showing you how to learn programming fast, how to prepare your resume so you get noticed by hiring managers, how to prepare and excel at programming job interviews so you get job offers more quickly and how to consistently gain the kind of programming experience that gets your career moving forward.

Let me tell you that from my experience as a software developer mentor, I have discovered that people make excuses to themselves because they are not ready to hold themselves accountable to results.
