My fiancee transitioned from medical stuff to programming. I think it'll work out if that's what you wanna do.
ymas59467dHello there, what aspect of coding are you hoping to get into, high level, low level, networking? Focus on abstraction techniques (these will help you a lot in managing complexity). Computer Science is one of the most successful manifestations of discrete mathematics. Without knowing your interests, it is very hard to make suggestions, in the words of Marcus Aurelius: "but if a thing is humanly possible, consider it to be within your reach". Good luck!
I am doing both math and computer science and I think the math people would be able to easily pick up programming, as they already encounter abstract problems and figure out how to make sense of things.
If math was fun for you (even if you weren't great), especially proofs and tricky exercises, I think programming won't be that hard to get into.
You will still need to go through learning it as there's information that you need to know, as any other skill.
If math wasn't for you, programming can still be easier for you. I'm not saying you need to be good at math, but I think if you are good at math, programming shouldn't be too difficult.
koin69667dMy boss studied math and I feel like 2/3 of my computer science classes were math too. The programming stuff you learn by yourself. University doesn't really teach it.
I11ya867dThanks a lot everyone! I guess I'll just keep at it and continue learning python's modules and Java while throwing in some theory!
If anyone has interesting stories though, I would still love to hear them!
If anyone has any good resources that they don't mind sending it'd be most welcome (not sure if it goes against the policies of this network though)
