Second: what do you want to work with? There are many niches in the programming community.
Are there any particular areas of interest?
D-T-M2794d@AleCx04 thanks, I appreciate it.
I guess this is the biggest issue actually. I'm not sure what areas are out there. I feel that I'm a lot more into developing applications than working with web development (I understand I can develop web applications as well). The gaming industry is pretty big in the city o currently live and I would really love to work in this field, however, I'm afraid to be already too old to learn all the skills necessary ... kinda having a mid-mid life crisis here. Areas that I'm very interested, such as machine learning, look thousands of years away from me now as well. Am I being too pessimist?

You inspire me.

The most important thing here is to get a job somewhere, and then git gud.
1989776094dJust so that you can seek some inspiration:
- I know a guy who was a car mechanic and no knowledge of computer.
- Started learning computer and programming on his own.
- Became good and got break into IT.
- Switched few jobs.
- Started blogging.
- Started being active on community
- Switched to a product company
- Switched somewhere else now and he is the lead technical architect.
So, don't worry it is possible but the road is long.
PS: Not my story but I know this person.
