Employers like degrees, but employers also like people who know how to get things done. At the very least, teaching yourself is a good start for whatever else you’re thinking of doing.

I’ve thought about it a lot: if I were trying to learn to program, today, from scratch, what tools would I want? Well, here are a few of my favorite things…

Free VS 2010 Professional for @edu accounts:

www.dreamspark.com/

Free Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers:

www.eclipse.org/downloads/

Free team tools worth understanding:

www.perforce.com/ (version control)

subversion.apache.org/ (version control – pretty much the same thing as perforce, but not as good)

git-scm.com/ (version control – a VERY different way of doing things, but powerful and gaining popularity)

www.rallydev.com/ (task management – kind of a pain, but good to play with)

Tutorials:

www.khanacademy.org/science/computer-science?k (probably a very good place to start)

www.khanacademy.org/exercisedashboard (math – the value of this cannot be overstated)

Online course-ware:

mitpress.mit.edu/sicp/

ocw.mit.edu/courses/#electrical-engineering-and-co…

www.stanford.edu/online/

edudemic.com/2012/04/the-25-best-places-to-take-fr…

Problem solving challenges:

projecteuler.net/ (we should go through these together)

Community:

stackoverflow.com/ (Q&A forum)

www.reddit.com/r/programming (some good links, okay place to ask questions)

Books:

www.amazon.com/Programming-Interviews-Exposed-Secr… (once you’re ready for a job, this is good to work your way through)

Possibly a good discussion about finding a software job, later in life:

news.ycombinator.com/item?id=4350827

And then…

Depending on the kind of development you’re interested in, there are a TON of other valuable resources, tutorials, tools, etc:

Free Cloud Services – depending on what you’re doing, these might be SUPER valuable… Might not want to make an account until you’re ready, because the clock starts ticking:

aws.amazon.com/free/

www.windowsazure.com/en-us/pricing/free-trial/

Free cloud development tools:
