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?

I recommend www.guavabean.com for finding online work. They post new jobs daily & it's totally free. The theme this month is TECH jobs :)
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.

I have personally used *“My Cash Bot”* before. But i loose my money trading on this program. A friend of mine he is also an expert trader. He suggested me *“Marketsworld”* . See it=> expertoptionbroker.com/marketsworld . I am using this product since 3 weeks and i am getting good profit. *Marketsworld* always provide me right time signal to buy or sell. It's a great program for newbie trader. Also there is good option for trading.

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, Thanks again!

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.

If you know how to code, you should be paid for it(!)
Mitteilungsbedarf (1 year ago)
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?

programming contests for making money !! it's easier said than done xD .. to win any of these prizes one must have tons of experiences and years of practice.
Max Lee (1 year ago)
I look at it this way: If you have the time, you lose nothing by trying, but will likely learn a crap-ton along the way.
RetardedPornstar (1 year ago)
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.
