Ask HN: Chances for Restarting a Career in CS @ 30+ ?
( https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=7997624 )
after reading all the answers and recommendations, i decided to study CS in 2015.
it was quite challenging in every sense: time/money management, high drop-out rates (~80% fail or stop studying cs at my university), lack of math skills - school was far far away.
now, i finished it and i can say, i definitely don't regret it. it sharpened my mind and changed my mindset in a positive way. i've got absolutely no problems finding job offers (mainly as consultat or junior software engineers (i.e. IBM)) although i am now in my mid-thirties.
thank you, hn community
