Based on the nature of these forums and the dedicated programming section, I've gained the impression that there are a fair few people involved in the IT industry here. I was wondering specifically how you all enjoy it. Before this summer ends, I have to make a couple of decisions regarding what I want to do. Before recently I was pretty sure I wanted to get into programming but because of my lack of familiarity with that scene, I have become somewhat apprehensive. I study ICT at the moment but it doesn't offer a lot of experience in programming since the only exposure is to Microsoft Excel and Access. What do each of you involved in this industry do and what is it like? I live in the UK but I'm sure details from other areas will help as well. tl;dr material, maybe?
