I'm not sure if revive, or start is more accurate. I've got a BA in Computer Science, and then about 10 years later, took some courses at a local community college to brush up on my skills and pick up some new ones, getting an Associate of Science degree in Computer Programming. I've only held one programming job, where I was a Software Engineer, using Visual Foxpro, and then Java. I stayed at that job for about 2 years.
I know some Java, having used it when I was a Software Engineer, and then taking several courses in it, when I went back to school. I'm also familiar with C, having used it almost exclusively in the upper level CS courses I took for my first degree. Those are the languages in which I would feel most comfortable programming.
I've also taken courses in Pascal, C++ and VB, and have taught myself a little bit of Perl and Ruby, and have done some Unix scripting. I've used HTML and some CSS, enough to build a personal web page, however, I haven't updated it in years.
I am currently doing data processing, using Visual Foxpro, but I would much rather be doing something along the lines of application development, preferably in a Unix or Linux environment. Unfortunately, I don't see very many job postings around here for that, let alone entry level positions. Many of the entry level positions require skills or more experience than I have, and tend to be more for full stack or front end positions, neither of which match my interests.
I'm open to any suggestions. Thanks.
