Hi there,

I am 34 years old and for the past 2 years have ben teaching myself C#, I am now learning ASP.NET, Silverlight & XNA. I am fairly familiar with other things like SQL, Linq and general OO programming concepts. However all the jobs I see require a degree and/or 2 years experience.

I really want to get a programming job and did actually work as a database administrator about 8 years ago (only for a few months though). Other background jobs were office manager in an insurance job and now work as a chef (for past 5 years).

Do I have a chance? Or am i wasting my time? I have your computer careers eBook, but didn’t really find it apply’s to my situation.

Please help. Any advice would be great.

Many thanks

Pablo
