Long story, I lost my company due to COVID, had a small graphic design and manufacturing company.
I’m now 45 years old and need to make the next 20+ years count in a big way. Am I to old to get into IT?
Have moved from South Africa to Scotland and secured a job in academic administration, eternally grateful for the job I have, but it is limiting in terms of career growth.
However 6 months down the line I feel I need to get back inti IT (I used to work in IT support for about 12 years, more desktop and network support etc)
Ok getting back into IT seems to be a bit of a different ballgame now, I really like to do design and "making websites and things work - I get great satifaction being able to build something and seeing it work)
So my question is 2 fold:
- Am I to old to start IT now?
- What direction should I go into: Responsive Web Design; AWS; Azure; Full Stack Development; Project Management
Need to go into somehting that makes good money and also a good career path.
Can anyone recommend a good course I can start with or just jump headfirst into Freecodecamp? (Looked at Coursea Plus; Udemy and also some bootcamps but prices are high) I would gladly do a free course and then try ge the cert.
Looking forward to hearing from you guru’s out there.
