I switched majors from Computer Science to BSIT in Mechanical Design Technology. I want to major in CS, but it would take me extra time and money to do so. Could I still teach myself CS without looking lost to employers?
Like Einstein said: "Imagination is more important than knowledge" and it's true. I'm a 4th year colleague, really good at maths, physics and especially in programming and still can't make even a dollar because I can't thing of anything to create and when it comes to upwork I can't make anyone trust me to give me a job. That sucks...

I admire your boundless optimism, energy and good will, but did You won any competitions organised by www.innocentive.com, NASA or www.kaggle.com ? Sometimes over 98% of the winners are USA citizen and some challenges are huge, so that even University professors have difficulties with such problems. On the other side there is no wonder that some students leaves the Universities when they see how great the difference is between the theory and practice.

Great videos Siraj,
In the past week I've watched don't know , 20, 30 of your videos , excellent job!
Could you list the very bare minimum topics (possibly along with a set of your recommended choices of textbooks) to enter the job market?
Something that can be used as a self check list,
wow, though i like you and you look skilled you made a mess here https://www.amazon.com/Decentralized-Applications-Harnessing-Blockchain-Technology/dp/1491924543#customerReviews it appears. post-mortem, why is that, lack of experience at the time?
Nice overinflated video. Could've been a 5 minute video, but hey! gotta fit in more ads and retention am i right!?
My favorite thing is the bot accounts pumping up your video. Might wanna change the verbage so they arent as obvious.
I don't think everyone is going to make their purpose to make the world a better place as a programmer because some people are just beginners and need a job. Down to earth people are accidental and are authentic. If, programming requires people to make things better as a requirement, you'll increase the barrier to entry into programming. Siraj you make good videos, you're smart and enthusiastic. As a joke, this video could be interpreted as becoming a cryptocurrency programmer: how to make money as a programmer.
Freelancing is the most profitable one. For all of those who want to learn how to build web applications, I stated a series of blog posts here: https://earnmoneyprogramming.com Posts are coming daily! Keep reading and you will be able to build a fully functional website in no time :)
Down to earth guide that is not comfortable to digest. Get good reviews, do great work. How do you know that what you developed means something in the world of coding? If you found out Bubblesort yourself and called it differently and put it in your resumee, people wouldn't be impressed and say "so what?". Also, whenever I developed something I thought was great there've already been at least 5 working implementations on github. Also, how do you learn the lingo of 2:29 without a bs in cs? Also: should you get bad reviews, which is likely in the beginning, how do you recover?
When I first started watching your videos, I found your overly enthusiastic manner of speaking annoying. Now I understand that what I was feeling was jealousy because you are extremely talented. I can only hope to archive what you have when I am your age. You are a great teacher and seem like a decent person too. I wish you the best, and I encourage you to keep producing high quality videos as you have done so far.
Hey Siraj great tips, another idea for programmers to make money is to build integrations for marketplaces. Example like shopify, magento, or even a plugin for woocommerce. Trick is to hunt around for the connection that is missing. We get plenty of requests to build different connectors into systems and like you mentioned on your video we go to upwork to get them built. Thanks mate keep up the videos.
Trading stocks typically have the lowest fees on eToro, which is one reason why I recommend you stick to this market when starting out.
All trades charge both a spread and daily rollover fees.
It really comes down to individual trading strategies and preference. But to give you an idea, I tend to hold on to stocks for a minimum of 6 months and all other trades tend to have an average duration of about two-three weeks.
A final word on over-trading.
This is a point that I want to expand on a little more, specifically in relation to copying other traders. Below is a screenshot of my equity chart over six months. The red line shows the number of people copying me.
My equity vs copiers chart.
The same holds true for the stock market in general.
