I'm I just kidding myself?
Hi everybody out in Javaland,
I'm a 38 year old maths and computer science graduate with a third
class degree who has been bitten by the Java bug.
I presently spend as much time as I can learning this great language and
would serious like to start a career in computer programming. The
problem is where ever I have seen jobs advertised the employers are
always looking for graduates with first
class degrees or post-graduate qualifications.
As much as I realise I will have to spend some money to do some sort of
course, even if it's just to solidify what I have learnt for myself,
because of commitments to my family I cannot afford to take another year
out to complete a post-graduate course.
Is it still possible to realise my goal even with these drawbacks?
I am trying to stay positive, but I'm I just kidding myself?
