Getting An Entry Level Job As A Programmer

+3 Vaughan Testa · January 22, 2016
Hey Guys Hope you all had a great Christmas and New Years. 
I have a quick question to anyone who has completed the C++ tutorials of Bucky's. Is this going to be enough to get an entry level job in programming or would I need to do a lot more, and if so what do you suggest. 

Thanks Guys.

I think c/c++ is just a basic tool for creating understanding in programming and developing a sense of how to design algos and work with the syntax. You need to practice more and more and go for advanced courses like object koriented programming and data structures and algos analysis!!! Hope it helps!!!

Bucky is a terrible teacher and has no idea what he's talking about, so I would say no.

I don't think it's enough. You should get a look at algorithms and STL containers like vector, queue, stack, list , etc. I think there is a course in coursera.com about algorithms from Sedgewick, really helps!

Yea you'll need more.

First off, anyone who is hiring is going to want you to show them some past work, hobby projects and such.

You'll be verbally tested on what certain types of things in programming are and how they work, as well as likely given some actual code tests like those found here: https://www.reddit.com/r/cscareerquestions/comments/20ahfq/heres_a_pretty_big_list_of_programming_interview/
