Basically, pick up codeschool, do the following courses in this order:

Git
HTML
JavaScript
CSS
(Some programming language, I like Ruby)

That should be enough to build a basic blog site or web app. Don't worry if you struggle, that's how you learn. Avoid shortcuts, take stackoverflow advice with a heap of salt.

why js before css?

Asher Bell
Asher Bell

Personal opinion: JS is more of a necessity. CSS just ensures that whatever you make looks good enough to attract users. You can build a site without CSS, but a site without JavaScript is useless.

Does "Systems" include building the infrastructure to make "big data" work? i.e., the plumbing that makes it reliable, secure and scalable? if so, i think i like systems too. maybe it means something else tho?

interest is only the start to a real passion in a field. Start by writing a variety of programs and exploring as much as you can. I found my passion while developing a simple distributed messaging system. When you find yourself unable to stop working on something, then you may have landed on something special

start slow, realize that it takes a long ass time to learn this shit. Also know that books aren't always that great, there's a reason a lot of programming classes choose to use more than 1 / skip through certain parts.

to answer your question more directly, it depends entirely on how experienced you are. If you're just starting out, look at Htdp to get your feet wet in fundamentals of programming

I'm a postgrad

I got hardcore into DBs during undergraduate. I really enjoyed DB architecture and related stuff.

My postgrad was AI and Bioinformatics.
Both of those are really interesting fields. You'd be best with a bit of a science background for bioinformatics because it covers areas of organic chemistry and molecular biology and the better you know those things (or can learn them) then the better you are at bioinformatics.

These days, I write web applications for biomedical researchers and am also the DB guy for these projects.

Shit's pretty comfy, I'm more or less irreplaceable because of my combination of skills and I work on interesting projects that aren't just putting some retail person out of a job.

I'd like to do more AI, I never got to code control systems for mobile robots and shit like that which I studied and did a thesis on. Can't have everything I guess.

pic is the opposite of related, I studied AI at postgrad because I want The Culture to be real. It's a long, long way away though.

Spending 4 years learning CS just to end up working in web dev

I actively avoid frontend web dev jobs because they're an insult to my educational background. It's like asking someone from culinary school to flip burgers at McDonalds.

Most people want to get lots of money fast so they are like: "I hear that you guys do so little for so much cash. I will try it too. Hurr durr". If you want to be developer then you don't need studies for that. Only benefit from it is a diploma so it will look nice on CV.

P.S. You need to be able to think things through and a bit ahead, which people in 21th century show lack more and more.

There's more to web dev than frontend. Being full stack is a requirement at most places. If you can't write a decent API, you're not valuable.

majoring in a meme degree.

Literally a useless degree that will teach you nothing. Your job will get outsourced by a shit skin indian anyway. Major in math and get a minor in cs, that'll set up much better for the future and you'll actually learn something.

i'm about a month away from my phd defense. i research systems that store and query big fucking network datasets, like roads and social networks

applied graph theory is fun as shit and extremely relevant right now, but i wouldn't recommend grad school until you've done at least a year of work, preferably 3

if you're in undergrad i think you should definitely take systems courses, and linear algebra courses that dovetail into machine learning

there's a job that emerged a couple years ago called a "data engineer" that is distinguished from a data scientist in that you work on the pipelines, rather than what goes through them

at the entry level this is just knowing about how to snap hadoop and spark shit together, big stock distributed systems (that tend to have a lot of problems and need a lot of babying because frankly, they're kind of crap)

high-level database science and systems science gets fairly technical and typically you would have some kind of background in database theory, distributed or parallel computing, high-performance computing/supercomputing, machine learning and occasionally you see programming language guys. i think it would be hard to do innovative work in this area without a PhD but research is not necessarily for everyone, a lot of people don't enjoy it
