  1. i have studied and follow up tutorials but still i have no focus on what to do next am just stock

  2. Hi Sylvester! New subbie here. The intro… lol. I am a software QA tester moving into Automation at my job, so I have to learn Java. I've resisted it for over a year believing I was not interested in it despite all the great things I was seeing. I felt I would just transition into InfoSec instead. However, after much soul searching and research, I've come to the realization that I still cannot get away from learning to code and do the work I want to (Application Security). I'm glad your video popped up in my search today. Thanks.

  3. I'm adhd and I've thought about becoming a Software engineer. My problem I easily get distracted and zone out.

  4. Thanks bro. This video helped me decide. I am a final year medical student and I also love coding. I was thinking of either getting a masters in molecular biology or getting cisco certification and getting into the IT industry. I just realised that IT is not for me because I am a kind of person that picks one thing and develop it over time till I become really good at it. So that means I wont be able to cope with learning a new programming language all the time to keep up. Thanks for the wonderful advice.

  5. Hey Slyvestor, what languages do you believe the industry is in need of? What should primarily work on?
