Getting work as a programmer?

Zoltar Zoltar writes  |  more than 6 years ago

Zoltar (24850) writes "I've got an old degree in CS and while I've worked in the software industry for a number of years I've never held a job doing any sort of programming. I've done all sorts of programming as a hobby and it's always been a joy for me, as such I'm considering looking for work writing code. I'm in the position where I can go back to school and get up to speed on current languages (C is the only language I feel comfortable in) and would like some real world feedback on what languages would make me the most marketable today? C++, Java, C#?? What about on the web side, is PHP king? Secondly, I'm thinking of creating an open source project with the purpose of showing any prospective employers some real world examples of what I can do. Is that sound thinking, or would it be better to join an existing project, or is that something an employer would consider as experience? What else can/should I do to stand out to prospective employers?"

Spammer gets Internet Justice!

Zoltar Zoltar writes  |  more than 6 years ago

Zoltar (24850) writes "In an attempt to promote his online gambling website NSX_NICK made a post to an NSX enthusiasts web forum claiming he was able to purchase his NSX with the winnings he made from online gambling, including a link to the gambling site. Users of the forum immediately accused him of trying to promote his gambling site, which he repeatedly denied. Forum members promptly went into sleuth mode and discovered not only was the guy a spammer, but he was also a convicted sex offender who may be violating his parole by running an illegal gambling website. An epic example of Internet Justice!"
