  • I'll try to answer some:

    1. Search for job offers in your city, country or even internationally.

    2. http://www.ehow.com/how_4988467_learn-computer-programming.html

    3. That's rather advanced question. Start with learning some programming language basics first, then move on to bigger projects. Use tools (e.g. Visual Studio) and samples from the internet.

    4. It does not wary from creating any non-SW company. To be successful company, you need good idea and good business plan.

    5. Microsoft hires internationally, so there is a chance once you are really good in programming, testing or other IT profession that MS hires for. Check the resources online: http://www.ehow.com/how_6661419_prepare-microsoft-interview.html.
