I kind of wish that I had majored in engineering in college. It’s too late now though (I majored in business). Instead, I’m teaching myself programming. I’m starting with Python at this web tutorial. From there I’m going to go into PHP/CSS/HTML and will attempt to build some websites that I’ve been thinking about for a while now.
The hardest part was starting. Having looked at the material for a few days now, it seems very manageable and is more fun than I thought it would be. If you come from a non-technical background and are trying to raise your tech-IQ it definitely can be done. Thinking that you need classes and the comforts of an instructor isn’t true if you’re motivated and have some hacker friends around. Having this mindset is very empowering, you feel like you can do anything.
If you’ve gone through this process before or have any tips, please let me know. Thanks.
