Hey, there isn't really a general forum that I was trying to post this is, so I've had to stick it in the "most" relevant forum that is avaialble.
I've been at uni for two years now and I still haven't found something that I'm particularly good at. I thought it may have been system security, but like my friend said: if you don't live and breathe it, it's probably not what you want to do.
The thing with that statement is that I've never felt like that about anything computer related, but it's too late for me to go back to college to change, so I'm trying to - not so much force myself to be passionate about IT - find some way of getting myself to live and breathe computing. I'd very much like to program though I've been told I don't have the right mindset. Although Software development isn't where I'd like to go, just being able to develop anything would be a bonus for me.
I have studied the following:
- HTML and CSS (with a little JQuery)
- Systems Design and Databases (mainly learning about relationships between entities within a system)
- Java (hated it, but I'm open to learn other languages)
- Networking (introduction and now we are on to a more in-depth module)
We are currently learning:
- MVC and a crash course in C# (which I am rather interested in, as I wanted to be a web developer)
- System Security (which is something I was interested in but learned that I didn't truly love it)
- Open Sourced Web Design
I'm sorry if I have broken any forum rules, I'm just really desperate for help as I know that University is different to the outside world and I don't really want to be the joke of the office if I do something I'm not awfully keen on.
I'm not the most motivated of person, but I think that's because I dived into IT without thinking and I've never been one to spend hours upon hours learning about a computer.
Thanks for any replies/advice
