How many started of development as a hobby and will to create something awesome and then got soaked into is so much that at a later stage in life you are really not left with any option because you invested all your time and health into sitting front of computers ? This is serious question and it would be great if someone experienced, like who is in their late twenties or thirties answer it !

    Nope, accrued a lot of other skills along the way in business, law, real estate, advanced mathematics, mech e, auto mechanics, medical coding and processes, etc. If you dedicated a large number of years to this game and only have the one skill, you're doing something wrong.

    @SortOfTested I am not even 22 yet so I didn't really mess up life but I had a feeling that was gonna happen with my current mindset and opportunities that i see in front of me. Anyways ๐Ÿ™ thanks a lot for your answer

    Am 22 got my first computer at 10 and I got hooked. Currently taking a bachelor's degree in software engineering. My computer is the first thing I touch when I wake up and the last thing touch when I go to sleep. For me it's a hobby and a passion . What I mostly love about programming is when I do projects and the client thinks am a genius (which am not , stack overflow can prove this๐Ÿ˜) .

    And I don't feel like I have wasted my life, my skills have allowed me to work on computer applications in all sorts of industries .

    am really proud of what I do, wouldn't have it any other way.

    @munabedan dude I understand you but in our thirties if that's how we behave w/o diversifying our knowledge its gonna be detrimental . I like how @SortOfTested (the above answerer) played out her game - hoping to do more like her.JUST SAYING THOUGH - I am not trying to force my opinions on you
