I'm new here and I came here to get some suggestions. I made mistakes in my life and I want to try to correct them.
I'm 27 yeras old and I'm going to get a M.Sc. degree in engineering on december (energy/industrial/power production/hvac systems) but... I like computers.
* as child I fell in love with computers since I saw one. My parents, with a lot of effort, gave me a 286 when the technology standards were 486. No compilers, no books, I didn't know what was programming. Only my grandparent gave me a book on DOS commands obviously batch was not included.
* as teen (14 y.o.). In my country there are technical high schools: first two years are common, next three years students must choose a track programme. I choose automation and electrotechnic instead of informatics. Shame on me.
* as teen (19 y.o.). As an idiot, I heard many opinions that eletronics and informatics were dead in the 90s and the energy is the future. So I enrolled in energy engineering without feeling myself... since nowadays.
Now I'm frustrated. I never learnt how to program, I never learnt how to design an electronic circuit. And I'll probably get a job that will not give me enthusiasm and satisfaction.
I can only blame myself, of course.
I'm interested in low-level programming and electronic circuit design. I do not like at all web programming and related stuff. I'm not able to do anything of these subjects but, when I hear these topics, I feel that I like them!
So I came here, through google, to ask you some suggestions. What can I do? A bachelor in electronics? home-made study for self-projects?
Probably these are a no-way out questions and my problems came from my deep unconscious...
Sorry for my english, be patient.
