Hi guys I have wanted to make this post for a few weeks now but I have been kind of afraid haha Im going to try anyway
I used to be a chef and I had an accident at work, I have been on disability for the past few years with a ton of health issues and getting out of the house is difficult and want to go back to work WFH I want to have a good quality of life
Im 30 years old I have zero coding experience and do not have a college degree
Is game development something I could start now from scratch and have a career in? I have seen that ageism has been mentioned intermittingly throughout my research on coding and its kind of a big worry in the back of my mind
If I keep doing online courses like codecademy and build a portfolio with projects etc is that enough to get into the industry and work my way up? Or will I be at a big disadvantage without a college degree? This is another worry mainly from a financial perspective
Thank you to anyone who reads!
