|Background: I taught myself iOS app development and have been doing so for about 3 years. I have enough income/savings to survive for a while, so there's no rush, but I've been considering finding a job, perhaps at a startup or an app dev shop. My apps are mostly kids games/entertainment, nothing super complicated.|
I took a couple courses, CS1 and Intro to C/Unix, at a local university, got 4.0 GPA each (bell curved up).
I can program, but I lack most of the formal CS education that normal engineers have. If I wanted to apply for a job after 1 month, what online CS course would be most beneficial for me (things I would actually need/use day to day or in an interview to show competency)?
Algorithms? Databases? Data Structures? Entry level courses of course. Any input appreciated. Thanks
