comment What teamwork methods can be learned without being in a team?
@James +1...I forgot to mention that in my answer. I consider version control an important part of every project, regardless of whether or not I am ever planning on working on it with other programmers.

comment Will taking courses in system administration help land a programming job?
+1 for Falcon. I am in the USA, and I can confirm that sysadmins typically make less than developers, and financial services firms typically pay more than other industries.

Yeah after I posted it here, I realized it would probably be better on Stackoverflow. If someone can merge it, thats fine with me.

comment Free private git hosting
I had the repo directly in my Dropbox folder and wrote code and committed it directly from there. I never tried to push from a repo managed outside of Dropbox to the Dropbox repo. This probably wouldn't be a good setup for a whole team to use, but for "private projects" it worked fine for me.

comment Is it always wrong to optimize before profiling?
@Berin most (all?) fine-grained optimizations depend on the processor and what the compiler produces. Thats why its not bad to make some obvious, high-level optimizations early on, and wait until after you've done some profiling to do any sort of micro-tuning.
