|I'm currently studying computer science at university (2 years left), to say the least, I'm not enjoying it, but I do find programming interesting when I explore interests on my own.|
Right now I'm really into C and want to dive deep and learn the language well. That being said I also want to make a comfortable living that can allow me to afford my other hobbies.
How can I start transitioning away from school so that I can start working full time as a developer as soon as possible?
The reasonable answer seems to be to just suck it up and finish school, anyone have any other ideas? Is it worth dropping out?
I'm okay with not being a ninja rockstar 10x programmer, I just want to be "average", decent enough to maintain a stable career as a developer, while allowing me to pursue my other interests.
