I have been watching you for over three years and your videos are great! I do however have a problem with the IT field, particularly with software development. I graduated as a programmer from a community college but found it difficult to find a job as a developer. If I were to look for a C# role, I would find experience for C# but also a number of other languages or experience needed in technologies that I haven't heard of. It seems to be like as a developer I need to know 20 different things just to be qualified as a developer for a particular language. Because of this I haven't been able to apply to any of the jobs because I don't have experience with certain technologies and as a result I have been working as a help desk analyst since I meet the requirements for that role as and IT guy who learned things as time went by. Why is this the case and how do tackle this issue in order to start my career as a developer?
