Do you have any software development experience?

No. Still a student newbie.

How much do you feel you already know?

A bit of javascript, jQuery, PHP, and Java. I'm beginning to understand the fundamentals better so as not to be scared when approaching a project.

What do you feel has been your biggest obstacle to learning to program so far?

Previous to my classes at Cuyamaca, fear of trying again because I quit out of computer science at my undergrad. Now, I see no obstacles save my own discipline and determination.

What languages or frameworks interest you the most?

Web development stuff. JQuery, PHP, Ruby, Perl, Python. Also Linux shell scripting.
