Trying to get started - any ideas?
I've been in IT for some time, programming all sorts of odd things. Having recently had a break from work I'm now looking at starting back into it again.
I've been going through the Sun training stuff to try and understand Java, I've also written some stuff in Java ( mainly around XML or JDBC ). I'm always trying to find things to expand my knowledge of coding, but it's not always easy finding up to date information on the web.
Is that enough or should I try and go for certification to show I can do it?
I'm in the UK in case the opportunities are different depending on location.
