Hi guys & girls or men & women from Bleeping Computer!
I hope I'm posting this into the right forum. If not, please excuse me.
I also apologize in advance for some incomprehensive sentences like I usually do when I'm excited about something but don't really know how to express it... So I hope you understand most of it
The title might seem a bit odd but here is what I mean. I'm currently studying veterinary medecine and one of my hobbies is computer technology, if I can call it like that. Before I started studying, I had the choice between informatics and veterinary medecine.
In the past time I thought about also getting in that path in case veterinary medecine doesn't work like planned and have some sort of second/emergency plan.
So, here are my thoughts:
- I like helping people out when they are having trouble with their computer. Although I don't know much, I like to google and search for the answer so that I also know it for later.
- I also like the security aspect like how to protect yourself better against something (spyware for example). Or how to avoid getting hacked or so. Or searching for failures in someones software/website/etc and telling them, like hacking in the good way (not the illegal way!). Tracking down malware & co in the pc, ... and get rid of it. (Hope this point is comprehensible for you ...) Is there a "noun" that sums this up?
- I also find programming interesting, I already did a little bit on that and managed to have my own calculator (yay) ^^. But here you have to be part of a team if you want to achieve something (big) or am I wrong? Well I expect you have to also be good on your own of course.
Well, I think this is it.. As you now probably know, I'm a little bit confused I don't know where to start and with what. What seems realistic, what not, ...
What do you people think, is there any help for me? ^^ I'll take everything I'll get!
Thanks in advance,
