Ok all! Thanks for the great suggestions. It seems overwhelming that I should learn a bit of code. I actually have been using wordpress.org (not that .com BS) a bit to design some sites but know nothing about programming but definitely a skill that is mobile and I could make a bit of cash on the side while travelling in Thailand or australia or wherever would be amazing.
So below are a summary of suggestions. From the very little I know about programming and monetization and what I have paid people to design websites for me I would say the most valuable would be : Html5, CSS3, SQL in that order.
Thus far my decision for 6 months off is
1 – HTML
2 – Spanish
3 – Training
But I can be easily swayed! I will start an official blog on Thursday so still have time to change it. I feel I can have full focus on 2 skills + training given the time I have.
Cobol – Old programming language (not sure if this is a joke or not)
Unix - – Ok so I am not sure what any of these are but I think unix is a programming language for the actual design of computers – not sure how “real world handy this would be.
SQL - SQL is a database language, can anyone go into more detail?
Java - I also thought Java was outdated? Why Java?
Html5: This to me seems the most relevant and able to monetize
CSS3: this could be a good one as I have thought of going into GIS and I heard they use “C” type programming (whatever that is) can I have fun designing stuff with this though?
New Language – duolingo.com : this sounds promising. I am totally leaning towards Spanish since I only know English I think this is a good starter and given the amount of time I have I could be reasonably fluent in 6 months. I would love to learn mandarin but I think it could be overwhelming and I may become a little frustrated.
Udacity, EdX, Coursera: not sure what these are? Online courses? Are they expensive or useful, anyone know?
