I'm 52 years old.
I have a Computer science degree since 1983.
I need to learn object programming because I didn't studied at university.
It seems hard to do.
But I think that I could learn it outside of the university.
So I suggest you the same thing.
Good luck!

Oggetto: [ljc] To old to learn new tricks!!!

Morning all,

I rarely post anything on here so I will try to briefly explain my dilemma/ problem.

First off I'm a mature student with a basic I.T background. I will be starting a Bsc computer science degree in June this year. I'm hoping to someday start a career in programming. But Im  get a mixed reaction, from a lot of guys!!

My problem is should I just do certificates and try get experience that way ??
Or start the degree hoping to start programming when I finish, baring in mind I'm in my early 40,s. ??

Or will it be like teaching an old dog to do new tricks impossible to do ???

Any advice, pointers, and honest opinions  will be greatly appreciated.

Cheers.

Naveed.
