I am 51 and due to retire in one year after 26 years in the USAF. Thanks to a frugal wife I am not under terrible pressure to make what I make now. That said, I heard some folks using the phrase “learn to code” as a political football and decided that I would prove it can be done. I have minimal computer experience other than Office products and basic stuff like setting a default printer on my devices. When I was in high school, we had the first computer class in our county taught on Apple IIc desktops using Basic, Pascal and a little Fortran. I fell in love with programming then but never used it after high school. So this is a bit of a “coming home” for me and I’m excited !! My plan is to focus on web development and maybe blogging and app design. Where it will lead, I have no idea but I hope I can use it to make some extra cash and help out some non profits.
Happy coding !!
