Quote:I'd say the biggest factor is how dedicated you are to learning it. I don't think you'll see much of a difference between those who started at 9 and you starting at 24. I do think you'll see a huge difference between someone who goes home and plays Left 4 Dead, and someone who goes home and reads C++ Templates. Thats it i would guess! the only factor is dedication. I am just a student programmer. But this is what even my teacher tells me. " If you have the dedication and committment, nothing else matters.THe doors will open automatically for you".
