Hi Joey,

I think you need to find an area you enjoy and in all honesty it took me a while to find out what I really wanted to do even though I had an overall interest in the web.

There is little pointers that may draw your attention to wards certain languages based on what those languages will allow you to make and achieve.

Me for example I am damn awful at design and find it hard work however I love solving problems. That took me a while to figure out as I felt design was an integral part of the web.

Maybe ask yourself what part of the web do you enjoy most?

Are you more drawn to gaming?

Are you a problem solver?

A flair for design perhaps?

If you drop me a comment with end goals I can point you to the languages that will get you there :)

Hope this is helpful Craig

Hi Craig ,

I like gaming , like everyone else , but i dont know if that what i'm looking for
The definition of "Problem Solver" is pretty hard to me to determine if it fit me or not

What im trying to say is i dont have a solid opinion about any of the Q you asked me above

what should i do ?

Think you !

Maybe its best, instead of following a track having a go on a few singular courses from the library giving you quicker chances to find what interests you.

You mentioned in your original question that you found it boring. What made you feel it was boring, the content of the course e.g. the teaching ? or what the course what leading you to make e.g. the website?
