Just a year ago I was a construction cost estimator, but I've decided to shift my carreer into programming, and now I am already working full time as a web-developer and SEO-specialist.
I have started from Java, but recently I've tried Ruby and I have fallen in love with it.
My main areas of interest at the moment are Java (Java EE, Android), Ruby and Rails, and I want to play with Scala or Clojure in the nearest future.
I can be of help, if you want to make a career shift too, but don't know where to start. It can be very challenging at the beginning.
Also I can help with HTML-CSS problems, and I am working currently with such CMSs like WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, so you can ask too.
