Oh What a Time.......To be hustler (IT Field)
 

 
I have been studying for the past few months to change my career to a completely different sector (Animal Scientist).

I am not very techy at all (I have a iphone 8 and before that I still a entry level boost)

I am a very hands on visionary, so the typical attention to detail and small scale details of menial jobs dont do it for me especially if its not in my field.

I say all this to say I'm the least likely person to have natural talent in "coding" as many a*sume.

But i see it like a video game back in the 90s. We didn't have the internet or cheat codes we had to keep losing until we figured out how the game worked and eventually what it took to win.

Same here and the best part is thanks to the internet, there arent any gatekeepers. You dont need a certain GPA, You DONT need to have huge amounts of money, You don't even need to dedicate 4 yrs of your life.

There are people in India who don't speak english yet are learning these skills via youtube and competing for 100K+ jobs here.

This is a no cert needed segment of IT, that can be entered by skill and of course knowing someone.

I chose Database Development but there are several languages/segments out there. Many of them have 100% free material on youtube.

We have all figured out that most youtubers use youtube as a billboard for a product they want to sell you. From what ive seen you can get enough material for close to nothing to get started in the field you would like..

1-2 hours a day could change your life especially if you don't have a degree or n demand skill.
Here are some resources for those interested.

Free Sql training course:


Free Software:

Free database:

Paid courses with references:

Over abundance of jobs available usually $30/hr+ entry:

I will be updating the thread as I study as a place holder feel free to ask any questions or even help a brotha out. LETS GET THIS CASH Y'LL

Good thread.

I work in the telecom industry in the field. sh*ts rough. Been wanting to build my computer skills to transition into an office position. We got a CAD department, so I could start there. Hour or two a day will add up over time.

And some sh*t that’s still relevant from when I was in high school 15 years ago.. python and CAD.

Mfs tried to put me on.. but i wanted to be a scumbag selling powder and chasing bi*ches.

Man the more I learn, the more I see how much the world revolves around data now. I picked this sector because it was the easiest barrier to entry but its looking like it'll be around for quite sometime.


And the sh*t is basic English, so very easily learned

Bro we all been there. I'm slapping myself that i didn't just keep going with this sh*t back i the myspace days.

Cad will be around for quite sometime, and it has a wide range of uses. From basic engineering to CNC/3d modeling work.


I would suggest checking UDEMY.COM. Courses are real cheap and if you can motivate yourself to study daily its no reason you cant put yourself on.

Don't just get caught up in SQL, learn noSQL too. I recommend learning cloud Azure, AWS, etc., Ansible (infrastructure by code). Cloud and automation is the wave of the future.

im fresh in my helpdesk career, just hit 5 months. already looking for the next thing.

They said i couldnt get this job without certs or school and did it without either.
My management experience got me a position as a help desk lead out the gate. We just built and launched the service desk for a big national broadcaster.

Thinking about going for AWS practitioner cert to start

Bro this whole field is about showing and proving. I would def suggest trying to move out into AWS or other cloud integration. Much more money and less work per say.

Lets get it!

Its very simple and me not being into coding/hacking/tech stuff it was a good transition for confidence level. Its very doable dog trust me.

I work full time, have 2 small kids and run a small business and still make it work.

SQL select statements are so basic and all the info is online. You really just need to get your foot in the door and can google damn near everything. I was surprised how fast I caught on too

WHat type of SQL work are they getting you to do? database development, etl?

I’m in a different section of IT.

I got my A+ and I’m about to take my Network + cert. test in the beginning of the year.
I’d like to learn more and get my feet wet in other fields.

I know in the IT career questions reddit I’ve seen many people who are sysadmins and are making bank.

As one not too familiar with coding how is SQL compared to other languages like Python and HTML?

I've written a lot about this before so I don't wanna keep writing big walls of text you can read about my story (and some advice I give) in this thread on the first page about coding



But I have a high school education from KENTUCKY, never went to college and I have a violent offense still on my record (can't get that bi*ch expunged until the end of 2020). I got denied a fu*king $9 an hour nursing home job because of it. It made me feel low as sh*t. Anyways with all that said I'm making almost $60k a year MY FIRST YEAR doing web development. I started off as a paid intern then got a $50k offer then gotten little promotions throughout this year and now I'm at $57k. I'll be making $60k+ next year at my job.

What I love most is I have the ability to work remote. My company lets us work from home 3 days a week and after a few years, I can apply to work remotely permanently. That means moving somewhere cheap like back to Kentucky with a $60k+ salary. That's like having a 100k+ salary in Chicago. I'll beable to buy real estate or do way more with my money than I can now living in a big city (I live in Chicago)

The tech industry (especially coding and IT) is the way out for people who never went to college (though having a degree can help but it's NOT needed at all). The tech industry is more about what you can do. You also don't have to know how to code to get in. If you are more of a sells type person, customer service oriented and manager type you can look into becoming a project manager.
