  1. Help me change my life and career.

    Hello guys! In the last two and a half years and specially this last semester I have come to the realization that I hate my life. I'm studying something I don't like and working in a field I don't care about. This past month I decided to react. I'm you average gamer/geek guy. Always been found of technology and well, I work in the finances department of a car factory and I'm recognised more by my tech skills than my accounting/administrative skills, so that's got to be an indicative. I'm going to graduate in economics this year and I'm considering applying for a computer science or engineering course next year. You are probably wondering why I'm writing this here. Here is the deal, me and a friend decided to start developing a game. We are focusing on learning java and doing an android/iOS app. I decide to do this because since I don't know anything (except the thins I've learned by curiosity) I think the experience is going to be good to start learning and picking up some experience. The thing is, as I said, I don't know anything practical about this stuff. I downloaded the JDK and eclipse, then I downloaded the android SDK. My plan was to learn trough the internet (videos, ebooks, forums). Just want to know what you guys think about this. Is java a good introductory language? Should I learn it in a more formal way? Should I just go for the C++? Should I focus on a platform different from android/iOS? Should I travel to the Himalayas and become a monk? I know there are a lot of FAQs about this and a lot a people have made the same questions, but I want a more personal opinion from you guys. And, if possible, some links or information you guys thinks might me useful for me. Any reply is appreciated. [img]http://public.gamedev.net//public/style_emoticons/default/smile.png[/img] Thanks!
