This may not be the best place to ask but I am sure that staff can move this if incorrect!
I am 55 years old and have worked all my life with my hands (carpenter etc) but 3 years ago I had health problems and eventually was told that I could no longer do the work I did anymore.
Long story and no need to go there.
So 7 months ago I began to look at learning to code. I can’t learn each day (sometimes it isn’t possible) but I do what I can.
I have written two very simple programs which require much more work but I know no developers who could give me any feedback.
So I have three questions.
- Is it possible to become employed in this field with no qualifications and such limited experience?
- Is it possible to become part of a team once it is known that you are over 55 years old and have such limited time in the field?
- Would one of you kind people please have a quick look at what I have done and tell me if I am wasting time or should I continue learning?
Regarding question 3, It may be an issue as the site is account only and I haven’t learnt enough of this wonderful resource yet to comprehend how I would ‘show’ my little project here!
Thank you for any replies.
