Hi, I apologize for the long-windedness here as I'm sure I will ramble.
(TLDR at bottom)
I have always loved technology and (at 34) have finally enrolled in college. I haven't actually picked my major yet but it will be technical.
I hope to build and maintain professional websites, (and maybe servers), eventually. For me to wrap my mind around something and actually commit to doing it I have to see a financial upside at the end. Basically, if I can't make money from it later, at this point in my life, I'm just not interested in seeing it through.
That said, and being that I've had a lifelong passion for technology, I think I want to build websites. I've spoken to a friend that does this professionally but I'd like to get some alternative ideas/opinions on where to start.
My first question, I suppose is, if I become proficient in these 4 disciplines will I be able to produce and maintain professional grade websites?
Assuming the previous is true, where should I start?
Is there some other path to take to achieve my goal? (Building professional and secure websites.)
My friend also mentioned learning Python but I feel my options for employment afterwards may be somewhat limited when compared to purely web-based crafts. Or at least, if I learn to make actually good websites and are able to maintain them, I will be better equipped to monetize my skillset in a more meaningful way.
Am on mobile so I apologize for any errors and if I sound some kind of way. Opinions are greatly appreciated.
TLDR - Wants to make money off technology and wishes to know best language to learn in spare time while going through college.This post was edited by Phinigma on Aug 31 2019 06:14am
