as long as you have breathe you should want to better you life. good choice.
It's definitely not a waste of time. There are TONS of jobs in technology...especially if you aren't afraid to do contract jobs. I work in the IT industry and had no trouble getting a job while still in school in my field.
I took a HND in civil engineering at the age of 40, found the college work a little daunting.
No, but be aware that you will have to continually update your skills and knowledge to fare well in that field.
No, but you'll need to spend a lot of time catching up.
I didn't see the programming part when I answered first. You'd probably catchup quickly. May I ask why you quit?
No, its not too late. If you were a programmer, you have the right mindset for this. Programmers and other IT specialists are very much in demand. I say go for it.
If you were out of it too long , then it may prove harsh to cope up.But there are few trends in technology where a fresh mindset is required.The old theory is totally abondoned making way for improvished techniques.Any such area of study may prove to be a boon for the future. Here experience or past studies aren't counted but the expertise in new techniques.
No one is ever too old to learn something new.
You are welcome Joyful Sweet one
