I started my career as a teacher of the elementary school in Russia. When we moved to Canada, I've got QXpress certificate as a desktop publisher and webmaster after studying books of David Blatner (still have one of them). The same way I learned web development: reading books and playing with the code. I became the professional web developer, and in my opinion, anyone can do the same.
