    Hi guys, thinking about self teaching myself programming and taking a test to get certified in it.

    Most companies won't accept a test as a real certification. Oh, it helps, but it's not all you need.

    Starting salary depends a LOT on where you live and what language you are (hopefully) qualified in.
    An optimist sees the glass as half full.
    A pessimist sees the glass as half empty.
    A realist drinks it no matter how much there is.
