Sorry if this is in the wrong place, I didn't want to clutter the 'Business Exchange' and so the general chat section seemed the most appropriate.
I am a teenager, currently studying my A-Levels (UK Qualifications for 16-18 Year Olds), and I have always had a fascination with IT and Computers.
It is getting to the time, when I need to look seriously about my options of going to University or whether or not I go into employment. It is almost certain that I would like a computer related job as this is one of my main interests. The problem is, I have no idea what sort of job I would want to, or could go into.
I have previously done work on websites, and I can efficiently create a fully functioning site (Logins, Registrations, Forums, Members Pages, Content Management Systems etc.) from scratch in HTML, CSS and PHP. I liked it because I could see the results almost instantly, I could write a PHP script in half an hour and I would see if it worked or not.
I have tried some programming, mainly C++ but I didn't like it too much because I didn't have that aspect where I could see the results. I therefore am not sure whether or not I could learn a programming language, which would obviously restrict the types of jobs I could do.
I am however very keen on security, but if I don't know a language then I can't really proceed into this?
I do enjoy servers, the sound and the sight... strange I know but maybe something data centre related?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated,
