My name is Mark Nibert and I currently live in Dublin, Ohio. I am starting on my Masters in Computer Science at Franklin University in September. I am also looking to move into more of a developer career at this point as the help desk and troubleshooting have became cumbersome. I am working on learning Java as this is what Franklin uses for their MSCS degree. What I would like to know is any recommended skill sets and applications to learn alongside Java? Also any advice on how to begin developing a portfolio and make myself marketable would be great. I have a little experience in programming from my Undergrad degree which should help me get started. I have several books on Java and several videos in which I am going to use I just want to make sure I developed the skills that will get me a job.
