So, I'm not especially good at it but...the only thing I've maintained any real interest in for the last 20 years is being a programmer. But without going to (or finishing) school I've got no idea how to make a decent amount of money doing it. £35k/yr. I'd be satisfied with that. That's not entirely true, really. I've got a few ideas. Just little confidence in achieving them without some kind of game plan or barometer with which to compare my progress to. I've had a meeting with a career man with dozens of certs that thinks I'm good enough for a junior programming role but...no interviews yet. My CV is just shit I guess. How do I get my foot in the door? How does a 30 year old non-college graduate even get started?
