    I wouldn't. Look into Safari Books online instead, it gives you unlimited book and video access to a huge stash of content. If you're lucky, your local library will have discounts on it as well.

    Senior position, no. I'm just more disturbed by the lack of willingness to take on more junior level people and train them up a bit.

    I have no illusions about how I got where I am today. It was because people were willing to lend a hand to the newbie, to teach and to guide. I'd be overly romanticizing it if I neglect to mention how much research and studying I had to do to get there as well. The thing is, it has to come from both sides to really cultivate a healthy job market.

    I was studying everything I could get my hands on when I was still in Missouri and by no means was considered average skill. Getting out here without connections felt like an exercise in futility more times than not. Most of that was due to not having the magical 3+ years of experience they wanted, despite my ability to match that skillset handily.

    Problem being, how does one get said experience? It's a nasty catch-22 until you hit ~2-3 years experience.

    Moreover discussion on this. It seems like a lot of the industry is bent on hiring senior, and consequentially fail to invest in people starting in the industry.

    AngularJS or Ember for frontend frameworks, a lot more manageable in the end.

    Heh, I doubled my salary as well. It was great until I remembered it's San Francisco and the Cost of Living goes right up with it.

I think I still want to focus more on drawing, but programming seems like a new medium I want to explore, you know? >:3 (Yeah, I'm one of those brats who suddenly wants to make games with no previous experience hur...) It's good that you still d...

    Just stalked and found your deviantArt (aka clicked "portfolio" out of curiosity)... Even though it's been a while since you've posted (I understand), there's some pretty neat stuff, I gotta say :D Just thought I'd drop by and say that.

    Good point. BTW, ran into Andrew this morning. First thing he said to me was "Sorry I haven't got back to your friend, busy week at work" Expect to hear from him.
