ProgrammingThis forum is for all programming questions.
The question does not have to be directly related to Linux and any language is fair game.

Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I am far off from getting a B.S in Computer Science, but I was just looking for programming jobs, so when I finish I know what to look for. Where are all the jobs for recently graduated CS majors? All the jobs require between 1-5 years experience to start. What jobs did you get when you first got out of college (to all the B.S holding programmers) and how did you get them (through the school?)???
Yeah mainly through the university. mine has a place where all the departments on campus post up jobs. some of my friends do coding for the chemistry and physics department on campus. go to job fairs, if your school has them, and apply for internships. also build up a portfolio of programs that you've done or create some to impress employers. try to make most of it general, but if your going into a specific field make more for that field of work.
post your resume on monster.com and other such sites. what you might look for is some up-start company thats trying to make it. you'll be able to have more input in an up-start company than a corporation. plus their just looking to hire someone interested in what they do so experience wont be taken into as much consideration. it will be a factor yes, but not as much as applying for say Microsoft. and ofcourse if you like the drone style coding just apply at Microsoft or the like.
One more question. I will have a A.S in computer science soon. what jobs should i look for. obviously not "senior programmer". I want to get a CS related job so I can get some experience, while I get my B.S. Linux game programming, here I come!!!
