Has anyone ever done computing with no experience?Watch
I have a college qualification in computing but I gained that around 8 years ago, never did anything with it and now I'm at the time where I want to make an attempt at uni as I'm sick of working dead end jobs for minimum wage. I feel like if I go straight into a computing course I will be so far behind and fail as I've had so much time out.
So has anyone had plenty of time out of education and has succeeded if not is there any way I can prepare for university?
Suggest you apply for apprenticeships, courses focused on real-world software engineering and infrastructure, build up a profile with portfolio of work on GitHub and side projects etc. get that experience first and then you can start applying for junior roles.
