Getting an internship is the option that some software developers have to learn and get experience in a real world environment where you'll get to see how software development really works (well, kind of)

If you are just starting out, one of the best and easiest ways to get a job is through an internship.

This is especially true if you are trying to get a job with a big technology company like Microsoft, Google, Facebook, or Apple.

Many large technology companies only hire experienced software developers or interns.

Internships provide a unique opportunity for a company to evaluate a potential employee before they hire them.

However... Is it possible to believe that you will get an internship without knowing NOTHING about programming?

So, recently I've been playing around with my daughter and she started selling cookies.

As a father, I could've helped her but instead, I decided it was time for me to step back and watch her. And I must confess that the lessons I've learned with her are simply priceless.

Watching her has made me realize some things I was doing wrong and some new techniques that really worked with her and that are so simple that I could start implementing in my life and sales pitching now.

Wanna know what I've learned? Watch this video and find out!

Programming is HARD, right?

At least this is what some programmers think. Today I've received a question from a reader telling me that he felt that programming was hard and he felt unmotivated.

He couldn't learn and he spent all day at home watching TV and etc... He couldn't just get his life ahead and go on with his projects.

So... How do we get around this? How do you find motivation so that you become a software developer?

Whether you're choosing a language-specific or platform-oriented credential, it's worth looking at my top five programming certifications for software developers.

I've talked several times before about attending to coding boot camps, doing nanodegrees but I've never actually talked about the best online programming certifications that are out there.

Nowadays, the entire programming workforce is changing so much and there are A LOT more options for those who want to become developers that, if you really want that, you should consider all possibilities.

Developer and programming skills are in high demand, and this isn't changing anytime soon. This is why achieving a developer certification can help you keep an edge in the market by making you stand out among your peers. And the programs are getting stronger each day, especially with those online certifications.

So... What are the top 5 online programming certifications?
