Today I want to talk about a topic that has been coming up a lot recently. A lot of questions have been asked on how to break into the software development profession if you do not have a computer Science Degree.

Let’s say you graduated as a Lawyer or a Doctor “Is it possible to break into the software development career? And the answer is, Yes.

  • Java

For someone who can dedicate 6-7 hours daily for about 3 months can acquire the skills and be employable.
