Hi All, I've had to recently take a break from academic studies (Law) due to ill health. I've been floating around thinking about things to pursue when I'm feeling well to keep my mind active and myself busy. Law is not something I'll be able to pursue in the very near future due to the commitment required outside of home. I'm basically not feeling too good at the moment and I've got a bit of a way to go with hospital visits, operations and so on. I've always been interested in computing, software, 'looking at' code, 'looking at' programming but I've never pursued it. Like many of you I guess there must be things you've wanted to do but never really got round to it. So as I'm at home for quite a while I thought I'd look into a few things. Programming seems a viable option as it can be home based, certainly the learning, and I know a couple of family members who basically just work from home, and from what I can tell are absolutely fascinated by their work. Which in my view is great, doing something you love for a living. I currently don't have access to Windows OS but I can obviously get Parrallels & Windows, but maybe I prefer to start out on my Mac, Objective C as a possibility? Your opinions would be greatly appreciated. Also for what it's worth I quite like the idea of being forced to pursue advanced mathematics, something I understand is very helpful/ essential in some cases for programming, and I've been messing around with basic math for a while now, I quite enjoy the problem solving. Do you guys have any ideas on where on earth to start? C, C++, Java, Objective C (and learn basic programming as I go?)? Maybe start with some iOS dev for iPhone as it's relatively instant feedback in terms of attempting to submit apps? In today's world, which is a great language to build a solid foundation on? A great base which will help me in future dev pursuits? Thanks so much for your help. I really would appreciate genuinely helpful opinions of members.
