I am exhaused at the volume of new coders who have posted on this board, thinking that coding was going to be some kind of get-rich-quick scheme whereby they would train for eight weeks and make six figures....and now are ticked off because it didn't pan out. Skill number one for coders is to be able to do your research. Enough said.
Kevin made some very valid suggestions, and if you're truly dedicated to beginning a career in the coding field, you'd be wise to take his advice. Your high and mighty attitude about being just a file clerk is disappointing. We all started somewhere. I started by answering phones and posting payments for 7 bucks an hour, in case you're interested. I don't think Kevin's post was at all demeaning, but you've made it that way with your reluctance to start where everyone starts....at the bottom. It was an unfortunate comment, and remember, managers are reading this board. Good luck, and hopefully you'll be able to start at the top, as you planned.
