Hello all.

I have very strong Web Application skill (PHP-MySQL) and I went to a local IT academy to learn Java and Android about 1.5 years ago and now working in a company as Android Developer.

My question is, What skills do i have to build to work in Raytheon, Lockheed Martin, General Dynamics... so on. Working such a company as programmer is my dream. I am 37 years young and non-Usa citizen.

Thanks for any feedback.

Did you check out their websites/job board for open positions? Those would be the best place to obtain information on skill set as well as citizenship requirements. It is but natural that the defense sector of any country would have stricter norms because of confidentiality.

Thanks for reply.
I have already checked such companies and i was nothing but C++. So, i guess Java doesn't require for defence or air-craft company.

C / C++ still rules as popular programming languages for writing system software!

Not necessarily. It just means that those companies do not have open positions for Java programmers.

You're unlikely to get any reliable insight by posting on random programming forums. My recommendation is to contact the companies directly to express your desire to work for them. Their recruitment team should be able to give you some valuable information regarding the types of skills that would be desirable to them.

Best of luck.

Dear Tim.
I know exatly what you mean and believe me i will such company as soon as i believe my Java skill satisfy my emloyer.

Sometimes, i read people's bio and i am very surprising because they work for example 3 years or 4 years as developer then they skip some huge company as google, yahoo, microsoft...

Anyway, i found out that, i cannot be anything more than a programmer in this damn country.
Here is my Advice to anyone who thinks come to japan and make career in IT industry. DON'T COME. Seriously, Japan is the last place to work as an IT engineer in entire universe (i mean as a foreigner).

Thanks for sharing your opinion.

These is no shortage of Java or PHP developers.
Instead become proficient in specialized skills that help you stand out to defense industry recruiters.
Ada is heavily used in defense industries. RTOS like VxWorks.
Market those skills through your blog and github accounts.
