In this post, I compare the demand for web developer skills to the demand for desktop programming skills, so that you can decide which computer programming specialization is better for you and based on that make an informed investment of time, money and effort!
Desktop Developers create applications known as thick clients that reside on the desktop. Aspiring desktop developers have to learn windows application development using tools like Visual Basic, C#, C/C++.
I have been receiving a number of questions from my readers about how much time it takes to become a computer programmer.
Looking back in time, I realize, I had this same conversation with a coach figure 12+ years ago when I was considering a career in computer programming. His advice was that it would take me at least 2 years of concentrated work to learn any new career. My coach figure at that time was a successful lawyer with more than 30 years of experience practicing law, so I took his advice to heart.
