Today the profession of a programmer, also known as a "Software Developer", is increasingly fashionable and sought after for several reasons. Whether it's to obtain a well-paid job, an ascending career with advancement possibilities, or out of personal interest in developing software applications.

This book can be of significant help in making a decision and conducting a study. It describes the gradual training process of an IT specialist, compared to the path others have already taken. This study comes with a set of proposals and recommendations regarding the methods and methodologies that you should apply to gain knowledge and practical skills.

All recommendations are based on my own professional training experience. Being a software developer for over 11 years, I've experienced all stages from junior to senior, and I realized that it would be good and useful to share my own experience and knowledge with others.
