I am a hobbyist programmer working on various personal projects. Generally, I don't feel very capable relative to, say a professional web programmer or app designer because I lack formal training and basically figure things out as I go. But lately I've started to wonder whether I sell myself short. Obviously I know more than nothing but how would I know whether professional programming jobs are within my reach? Do I actually have the skills and talent to work on mobile apps, program web sites, or design databases? What is the minimum ability or level of expertise to pursue a job in programming, web designing, or UX?
