Is late 20s too late to learn programming?
>>
>>64114736
fluid intelligence starts decreasing at 30s. so start quickly. start with C or you're guaranteed to be a code monkey in a few years.
>>
>>64114736

No, but imagine how much you would know now if you had started learning at 14 instead of playing vidya.
>>
>>64114736
What about 50's?
>>
>>64114736
yes, unless you've been studying mathematics or some other highly analytic scientific field, you will be contributing a net negative
>>
>>64114761
This it depresses me no end I'd probably be a millionaire from selling some meme app
>>
>>64114804

>tfw started to learn programming when I was 10
>tfw I'm too much of a fucking mess to do anything remotely major
largest projects I've worked on were a few smallish games, and basically none are completed, even if most were further along than just proof of concept stage
just a lazy cunt who can't into focusing on anything
>>
>>64114761
People who wallow in the past without improving the present are losers.
>>
>>64116809
stop fapping
>>
>>64116863
Tbh a lot of people who try to improve their future are also losers.

I went back to college at 26-27 for comp sci. Just turned 30 two weeks ago and I have a decent job as a developer.

>>64114804
This depresses me as well but I can't let it hold me back because then I'll just be depressed about the potential I have now that I let slip away.
>>
i went to college for cs at 24(though I had been doing a tiny bit of programming when I was 22~23)
graduated at 28
had job at 29. had no problem doing the workload.

the only thing stopping you, is you.
>>
>>64114761
I started at 14 and I still don't think I'm that good.
>>
>>64117597
If you aren't good within 2 years then programming isnt for you
>>
>>64117661
Well I don't know if I'm actually that bad, I do good in all my courses I just feel I should be better by now.
>>
>>64114736
As long as you're still breathing, you've got the green light. Better late than never.

Depends, are you a retard?

I'm 33. Been hobby coding for 4 years. Getting constant messages on LinkedIn lately. We'll see if it bears fruit, but so far prospects look pretty good
>>
>>64114736
Not at all.
If anything I'm 25 now and have easier time understanding abstract concepts.
Find a language you like and some beginner books,than a book that leads you through examples.
After that figure out what kid of programs you want and pursue that and study how you would do in doing it.

I’m 29 and l just started with C++ a couple of months back. Yes, I MIGHT be too late to get a 250k/year job at google, but the way I see it is that I’m learning a skill that most of my peers haven’t got a clue about, and will probably never learn. So not only is it interesting, but its making sure you will still be relevant in 10-15 years no matter how the job market changes.

demographic of turkey is really amazing. there are literal monkeys as there are people much whiter than amerimutts and some eu countries.

>>

>>
if you're asking /g/ for advice then it's too late for you OP
>>
>>64114736
No, it's never too late. You do need to be in da spek, though.

>fluid intelligence starts decreasing at 30s
This is completely false and substantiated by nothing.
