Question #44422
Hi,I wanna be a self taught programmer but somehow I lost my confidence few months ago and to be honest I know I can but the question is how I would earn?As I am from India and people over here tend to run for college after finishing school.But I don't want to waste my money and nor I have that much for those teachers who don't teach but only want to earn money.Especially over here the education is becoming a business.When I tell someone that I am learning by myself ,they give me a hell look and after their look it feels like I am a dumb idiot sitting at home because I am a failure.Today two of my classmates came to visit me and after they told me that they have joined a college ,I felt ashamed of myself and also felt bad for my parents that when anyone asks them that what their child is doing they cannot answer much.What should I do?I passed my school last year and don't want to waste more time.Please help me.

In any case, anything what you will know you will know only thanks to your own work. Today you can get a lot of high quality books about good programming style and modern programming languages like Python or .NET family. So, it is possible to be a self-taught programmer. Nevertheless you should understand, that a good programmer usually has a mathematical thinking and it is easier to take enough experience in math in college where you can meet with teachers and other students. For self-teaching only corresponding books like Knuth's "The Art of Computer Programming" and forums like stackoverflow.com are available.
