IT / networks or any engineering field


Recommended Posts

I'm not that close to my release, but it will be a few months later.


I started to think about what would happen to me after the military and in the meantime I have some ideas in my mind, I want to try to go into a technological field because I've always been on the computer (although I haven't done too useful things until now) but lately I started learning a bit about Arduino and also basic lessons on Technical Support (Comptia A +).


From what I understood big, unless you do a degree in electrical / software / computer science then it is very difficult to enter the field without being some genius for already a 13 year old programmer. I read a lot on the internet (don't know how true) that all of Gone Bryce's programming courses etc are a bit of a joke, that most people who finish these courses after paying NIS 15 amount to the fact that they learned a little bit of programming and had to work in a different field at all as a living. The same thing I've heard about the engineer as well, whether it's software or electronics. That's why the IT sector has attracted me more because I'm a person who likes to understand how things work and fix things that don't work. I am very connected to the field of computers (maybe less math and theory). Unfortunately, basic information on how to download games and all this crap I don't really have the knowledge or experience of anything practical or effective. I don't know at all what Active Directory is, hardly know how to connect a computer to a network other than password password, know how to install Windows And that's about it. As I mentioned before, I started to mess around a bit Arduino and meanwhile I really enjoy it but I'm also aware that it's just a pretty toy, the hardware and embedded domain is light years more than simple code in the idea of Erdoino.


I will summarize all this salad I wrote here, is there any point in doing software / electronics engineering? Is it worth this big financial investment? Or is it better to go towards IT (even though the course name is very expensive)? I am a person who likes to understand how things work unfortunately a realistic or mathematical head I do not have and I will be honest with all my heart I do not consider myself improving mathematics units and so because I do not think I have the motivation to do such a thing.

Quote of Jabberwock

You should go on YouTube to look for videos on Erdoino, Projects for them, or an explanation of basic parts to see if you're attracted to the field.

There are plenty of videos, you can learn a little about the way.

Yes thanks for the offer, I already got to see videos even download some PDF, I learned a bit about the domain already
