comment What can I expect when moving from University to a real programming job?
I've heard that I'll learn more in the first few months of working than I have in my entire time at university. I certainly hope so since I learned most of what the university taught about programming through time spent as a hobby two years beforehand D=

comment What can I expect when moving from University to a real programming job?
I'm certainly calmer now that I have an idea what direction to head in :P I guess communication is something that I can only pick up in the work environment. So if I can't get an internship as another answer suggested, then perhaps it's something that I'll have to face when I start a job. I guess no matter how much I learn now, there'll be a lot to get used to in the beginning. Thanks for your advice :)

Yeah, that'd be a great way to get some real world experience. Perhaps I could get some similar experience although less ideal experience from working on an open source project if I can't find anywhere. Thanks for your answer :)

I guess even if it can't be used as a demo to show off my work, it's at least added experience of delving into a larger real world project. Thanks for the advice :)
