    Programming is fun if you have house to program in. So money isnt only a nice addiction to it...

    Last week on a job interview (more a consultancy client actually) a management guy, 55+, tells me it's a bit late for me to do a career switch (I'm 40). This is exactly why I'm doing it. I could easily apply for a job as a copy writer or technical writer, but that seems boring as hell.

    It's not like I'm going to make a lot of money as a junior dev, but I don't care.

    ....until you're employed and you have deadlines to meet. The fun and joyful part of it slowly slips away and then programming burnout creeps in on you.

    Anyway, that's what I'm scared of.

    @Banele I mean to an extent, school has been brutal with deadlines... but I still enjoy programming overall... though I'm hoping on the job my attention won't be split across 6 different projects at once...

    Bit of a delusional statement as you're quoting a guy who can work on whatever he wants on his _hobby project_ whenever he chooses to. Most of us have bosses or shitty clients cause money.

    Well I need money and soft dev is the only company that accepted me because of my major (I even tried starbucks)

    @drtokky Well, I've signed my first contract two days ago, so I'm officially a junior developer now! 😁 Maybe it's easier in Belgium than in the states. I was able to attend a .net course in a government program, so it was free for me.

    There's a big shortage in devs in Belgium. I eventually had 3 companies that wanted me. That's before ending the course. Still have 3 weeks to go.

    I got literally fucked off by finding fun in programming. All my dumb ass friends got job by just memorizing stuffs and getting good grades and I'm fucking jobless here in the love of Technology.πŸ˜₯πŸ˜₯πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

    @drtokky thx m8! I'm into backend myself, but if you're a web dev, you should look into angular. It's in big demand in Belgium anyway. The best advice I can give to you is code every day. At least one or two small programs/exercises on lesser days 8)

    Programming is fun at 100k$ per year not less.

    That "most good programmers" can transfer their salary to my bank account.

    It would be different for different programmers. There are some who love what they do i.e. 'programming', while for others it might be just like any other work that people get paid for. Especially, here in India where 2 of every 3 among the youth work in some IT company, it's quite obvious that not all of them are fascinated by it. Infact there are many who have started to hate it.
