A question which is probably posed by many newbies to programming . With a lack of experience and no real background in programming of any type, what (in the opinion of more experienced programmers)would be the best way for someone to develop a career in this industry and develop the experienced skills required by most employers. 99% of jobs offered are for people with 1+ years experience or more in a programming capacity. I am taking the SCJP which offers lots of knowledge , but no experience how can a beginner get started?

There are plenty of open source projects out there as well as online colaboration projects that are open to beginners as well. Try searching around for that. I knew some websites that offered stuff like that but can't quite remember them right now. Of course, that's all non-paid and purely in your free time, so it's quite an investment to make, but at least it gives you experience and something to put on your resume.
