I was outside my office smoking a cigarette. Some guy on a bike asked whether he could get hired ... without programming experience ... he wanted nine dollars an hour to learn how to write code.

WTF?

Well Blair I'll tell you what I told this guy. Write some code. Make some kind of a sample thing so you can stand out among all the other applicants. In a way the coding business is like an art school. Both places expect applicants not to know everything under the sun but to have proven talent/proficiency
