rutee072035564dWhat are you studying? How do you manage working and studying at the same time. Do you work full time or part time? Did you finish a course first before getting your current job? Are you studying a different course now or is it a Master's? Do you pay for your tuition out of the salary you get from your job? Is it hard? Was it tough saving up? Do you live alone? How do you budget your expenses? How is life in general?
@rutee07 Hey thanks for the interest!
I'm studying Information Technology in the Netherlands and I am currently at the end of year 3. Due to my prior experience with programming and my motivation I was able to finish year 1 and 2 in my first year and go straight to year 3.
I work 8 to 16 hours per week part-time and usually only go to the office (in a different city) once in 2 weeks because of school and the time it takes me to travel to that city.
The second half of last year I went on an internship (year 3) for school and worked there for half a year on a few internal systems, I was offered a job afterwards and that's how I came here.
Still studying the same course, next year's my minor and final assignment. I don't pay my tuition with my salary.
It's not hard really, it's a lot of backend and DevOps work that I love, Docker, Ansible and Linux servers are fun the work with. I currently still live with my parents (I'm 20) and I don't have that many expenses atm luckily.
