So everything I’ve read and listened to about being a self taught programmer, and the pit falls that many fall subject to says to pick what career you want and then learn those technologies. They say if they could do it over again they would pick the career they wanted and then focus on those skills, but the problem is I have no idea what I want to do in programming.
All I know is that I love solving problems and digging through issues to figure out why things are not working. I love writing and fixing code. So literally anything in the field of software development sounds amazing to me.
So my question is how do I decide what path to follow? Is there a large resource of job descriptions that I can read to tell me what I may be best suited for? How can I know what to learn if I don’t know what I want to do?
Any help or guidance would be greatly appreciated. I’m trying to go about the self taught route as efficiently as possible and I don’t want to waste time learning something that won’t help me in my future career.
Thanks for your help!
