25, is it too late for me to learn to code? If not then where do I start?

It's not too late, plenty of older heads have started after 25 and settled into their careers. However, if you've never even had a modicum of interest in coding when you were younger, I highly advise you against starting down this path. You will more than likely quit and even if you don't, you will be subjecting yourself to a torturous existence.
This . It is never too late to learn if you have enough motivation.
CS industry is dead within 5 years. Get good at hairdressing or something cause that's never going away.
Learn Python. It's among the easiest languages, as well as relevant for a lot of things.
everyones fearmongering that IT is dead because AI/GPT4/other buzzword, theyre all schizo. If you wanna do it, you should at least try to and itll be fine
A lot of doomposting because of AI but if anything learning could be very fun now, especially since you can just ask an AI questions about the basics.
Why do you want to learn to code? What do you want to make?
Somebody ask gpt what's the meaning of human life after the ai takeover
That's such a retarded human question that some people are obsessed with, the AI would laugh at you if it could.
Also the AI could never know, because you need a soul/spirit to reason on philosophy and spirituality.
AI will probably take your job in the next few years so you will find even less meaning to life. A good opportunity to learn what actually matters and will serve you for the afterlife. This AI happening will shake people up very good.
>you need a soul/spirit to reason on philosophy and spirituality.
gonna ask my dog then
Man, at this age most programmers drop programming, so you will have a lot of vacancies to fill them with your ass.
Dogs have no soul.
i worked shitty retail jobs and had never coded at all in my life until i was 27 and started learning webdev. now i'm 30 and have a comfy frontend job. if you're smart and motivated you'll be fine.
did you have to get any degrees or certs?
two year vocational university education with internships. got hired at the place i interned after i was done with school.
interesting, thanks for the info anon
you don’t need to learn retard. just use ai
alright anon, this is your chance to shine, show us what you can do
>opens internet explorer
>types google in the adress bar
>prompts: chatptg, make me a quick webpage for my first interview
that was clever anon, you're in
Piggybacking off of this thread
My options are shit and I'm graduating next month. Nobody has given me an internship opportunity so I am entering the workforce with zero experience. Do I join the military or work for a contracting company (Revature, FDM, Accenture, WileyEdge?
>Revature, FDM, Accenture, WileyEdge
Surely you're skilled enough to not stoop this low
What alternatives are there? I am not getting any responses from any employers and I have been applying since early last year.
Start by networking and getting to know people. It's a numbers game. 10 people and you'll 100% get to know someone who knows someone with the opportunity. LinkedIn, all kinds of irl social events (e.g. weddings, birthdays etc)
learn to forge your own interests by what interests you, not by what current corporations are seeking
what do you want your life to be, eternal slavery to corporations need? no thanks
Too late, GPT-4 already replaced your dreams and ambitions.
With your mindset it was over for you in the second you were born.
>You can't learn anything new after 25
This is retarded, you don't learn as fast as you get older but if you're motivated you can keep learning new shit unless you get a neurological illness.
It's like lifting, you're not gonna make gainz as fast as someone in their early-20's if you're in your 40's, but it's still perfectly possible for you to make gainz.
You should just masturbate, you'll get more out of it than learning a dead trade.
this. it's over. both you and OP and everyone else needs to just skip the the end of the story and apply to taco bell already. leave the rest of us to suffer in our wfh jobs as we shake in fear of AI coming for us eventually!
based. coommaxxing/dopaminemaxxing is the name of the game now
Professionally? Yes, it's too late.The cutoff point is around 18 or 19. But you can still learn it as a hobby (and you should).
if you're gonna be this retarded at least explain the reasons.
my NEET cousin just got a job at 28 completing a 2y course. they didn't even care about what he did in the past.
Get good at wizardry instead. Lots of German white people would pay to have their child turned into a dog.
What about at 30?
its over but not because your age
chatGTP made it over
never too late to learn to code, might be too late to learn it for cash though.
if you didnt start young you will be shittier than a codemonkey
There's literally no reason to live past 25.
It's not to late but, the truth is it is difficult. if you have an undergraduate degree in science then you're more likely to succeed. if you weren't able to attend university or had to drop out due to sever circumstances then if you've solved those issues and are motivated then you may succeed. if you've never been good at problem solving it may be more difficult especially if you're not passionate about it. you need to make sure that you 1. have the capabilities and 2. that you have the drive to do it. If you're pursuing coding because you want money and status or women then you're falling into a cult and you'll get swallowed very easily, there are a lot of predators preying on desparate self taught devs.
No it’s not too late but you are also getting too old to ask questions like this and seriously care about stuff in relation to your age
>another is it too late for me to learn thread
if you're asking this question you've already failed
either go and learn shit already or don't
now fuck off
bro AI is about to fucking DESTROY this industry. You're basically asking about learning animal husbandry for horses as the first cars are getting made.
just two more weeks!
>two more weeks!
I saw this phrase in few other places too. What does it even mean? Is this new meme or something?
Anon, this meme is 3 years old... It parodies people who desperately believed that Trump would win the 2020 elections.
You both need to go back
too more weaks
spotted the Civ player
Coding is not hard. Prepare yourself to memorizing over 9000 functions of your framework that smarter people than you already programmed so you wouldn't need to.
There's literally nothing I can think of that's more cringe than some non-programmer trying to get into programming. It's like they are so far off the mark I don't even know where to begin with them. The average programmer, and even the below average, just exist and the things that you consider "normal" just happen to them. No high schooler ever had to get into programming, he just existed, thought it would be cool and fun to learn to code, and was attracted to a programming language and they gravitated towards each other. There's no thought put into any of this, these things just happened through the natural flow of life, no "getting into" necessary. That's what happens when you're not a non-programming freak, you don't ever find yourself one night lying in bed alone wondering why you don't have an interest in programming. You don't devise a plan to stop touching your cock for six months in order to look learn a programming language. You just exist, you go with the societal flow, and you end up with an interest in programming and knowledge of multiple programming languages in high school and college, then a 6 figure work from home software engineering job. If you missed out on this flow, it's probably because you're a non-programmer.
