I'M a single parent, 24, and I have a full time job in a factory. That's pretty much killed any change for me to go back to school. I love the computer field and I've been playing around with C# and Python for a little bit and I'M also a new comer to Linux via Ubuntu.
I would really love to get a job in the IT community and out of my current manufacturing environment. I would love some advice on fields and training that would be fisable to me. Thus far all I have is a GED and I just got a Certification of Completion for Introductory to C# (unaccredited) $90 from a local collage through this web site SNIP
I'M interested in Programming, A+, Network+, & Security +, Server Admin, Database Admin, Linux Admin. Not that I know a lot about any of those. I doubt that one little certification will get me far. And if it did I don't think I would be able to hold on to that job. I've found several other sites as well with online training in the fields mentioned above. Some were as lows as $200 to $3500.
There's also SNIP
I've found a lot more but I've got them on my Windows partition.
Those are my interest although I don't know what would be the best rout to take. I have just a little self taught programming experience via the Internet and Books-A-Million/Amazon.com. I would love some input as to what I should get into. Please give me some advice from different perspectives. Not only how much money I could make but, what's would be the fastest and easiest rout.
Thanks for any and all replies.
