Just passed my SCWCD today...78%, above what i had expected. Many thanks to the ranchers who provide tips for practice materials and discussing the HFSJ questions.

Now, I am a self-taught programmer with no University Degree in IT, and I want to start a career as a Java J2EE (Web) Developer, what do you guys reckon is the next thing i should learn? Frameworks like Spring, or SQL or Java Web Services...... any suggestions? Cos i have really no idea and i don't know anyone working in the IT industry.

Thanks

A firm grasp on the major frameworks is always helpful (Spring, Struts, etc.) but generally I think your best bet is to get a University Degree.

I myself work in the industry for 2 years now, believe that I have a fair understanding of the software world but I don't have a degree and I have decided to go to university this year.
It's more about the level of recognition that you gain from a degree. It helps getting your foot into the door to begin with.

Anybody correct me if I'm wrong.
