How do you know if you should become a Java programmer?
Can someone tell me the characteristics or skills you should have to become a programmer? I was really good at math, I'm analytical, etc. I graduated from college with a law major and I'm switching to programming. I've been a front-end developer for years, I want to go to back-end.
Graduate schools suggest that you take undergraduate courses before applying for a Masters in Computer Science. This is why I'm in the class.
If you know Java, can you tell me how long it took you to get good at it? Thanks :-)
