    > Want to work as freelancer part time in "network programming",
    So what's your day job?

    Part time can be anywhere between 1 hour a month and 20 hours a week.
    What's your commitment?

    Two things
    1. "in demand" is geographically sensitive. What's in demand in one place isn't in demand somewhere else.
    2. "in demand" is time sensitive. What's in demand today might be cheap as muck tomorrow. Because wherever there is a demand, there is an in-rush to meet that demand, and then there is a glut.

    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    Are you dedicating 3 to 5 hours of your day to just learning?

    The first port of call for network programming would be this -> Beej's Guide to Network Programming

    The next question would be, what kind of network programming
    - kernel level drivers written in C
    - low level userland applications written in standard C or C++ (using only what the OS gives you)
    - higher level userland applications using 3rd party C or C++ libraries (eg libcurl)
    - higher level userland applications using say Python

    What aspect of network programming interests you?
    - email
    - web browsing
    - chat applications
    - video streaming
    - cryptocurrencies
    - cloud computing
    - and
    - so
    - on
    - ad
    - nauseam

    Network Administrator and Network Programmer are two different things; what you stated you wanted to do sounds like Network Administrator to me.

    Edit: I have never done either one; but, I did work in a group one tine that had an Network Administrator. One that did network/router administration.
