comment What are good projects to create to show your future employers?
I'm definitely going to do #3 to show future employers what I'm doing and to show how interested I am in programming. For your point #2, I've thought about it but I'm not exactly sure if it's worth spending time on it since I feel like most employers wouldn't bother reading it (and thus time spent coding would be more benefic). Finally, for point #1, it's a great idea, but wouldn't creating original programs (instead of copying existing ones) show that I can plan what I'm going to code and that I'm able to complete projects with my own solutions? I'd like your opinion on that! Thanks!

Seems like a great idea, I'm probably going to try that if I find a project that interests me. Thanks!

Let's say I show the project I'm talking about in my question, if I understand your answer correctly, I should document it in a way that highlights what the main problems were, how I decided to approach them and how I solved them rather than putting emphasis on my technical skills in a language or something similar? Am I correct in assuming that or am I missing the point? This might seem like a silly questions but I've never had a job in this field so I don't actually know what's most important to employers...

comment Where can you find your first customers as a freelancer?
This is a good idea. But I heard that often on rendacoder.com or the such you get lowballed because other people often undercut you to a point where you do the job for almost free. I don't mind not getting paid much when I start, but I still want to be able to get paid decently enough to pay the bills and keep living comfortably. Monster.com might be a good idea. I'll definitely build up a portfolio on a website, that's a great way to show your work.
