As the title suggests, I'd like to get into freelance programming. Short term, I have some hobbies I'd like to fund. Long term, I would like to program full time.
I have a B.S. in comp sci, with the caveat being that I've been an IT admin for the past dozen or so years. Most of the code I write these days is powershell, with a few projects here and there in C#. That is not to say that the majority of my day job is coding, but I try to keep sharp.
Many people on here talk about building a portfolio, but I'm not entirely sure how to do that. There is also talk of being proficient in languages that are in demand, which goes without saying.
I'm not adverse to working on open source projects or learning new skills. AWS in particular seems like something I could get into for fun and profit.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
