|I am in Italy and I need help. I hope there is anyone here on HN that can help me. I am a Computer Science student, I started 3 years ago the course because I LOVE PROGRAMMING. My only wish is to get away from here. It's like a trap. I have to thank the internet for connecting me to the outside world. It feels like it's the only way out for me and I am obsessed. Thing is "startups" here are hell, lots of bureaucracy and so on. I tried to look away, apply for a job/internship in the U.S. but the reason is always the same: visas are hell. I would do anything to get my way out.|
I study EVERY DAY so hard, University here is a mess, bad management and few very good professors. I know how to program, I have a strong passion for algorithms, data structure and complexity analysis. In addition I try to learn new things in my free time, like other programming languages, tools, etc. You know, I am in my third and final year and if it wasn't for my curiosity now I would have no knowledge at all for REST, Python or even Maven! (Just saying)
I feel trapped, I am trapped. Jobs here in enterprises are that trap, you can get a job, maybe programming in Java, and stay there forever. Because here is how the things works. I can't get my way out. I would like to pursue my educational career and I hope that my applications to English University succeed but still it's just a try.
I don't expect anything more from my situation, I really hope that someone can point me to the right direction or at least give some help.
Thank you HN and sorry for this post, but I had no other chance.
