So, you know the drill. All of the friends you went to high-school with see you driving around in your flashy sports car, living in your penthouse apartment overlooking the city's skyline, and just generally throwing your surplus cash around like you were a filming a gangsta-rap video for MTV, and they want to know how they can cash in on all of the glamour and fame that comes with the role of being an entry-level Java programmer as well.
