What do your work with? what did you do to get there? (certs, major etc.)
Are you happy?
Tips and trick to get out of mum's basement and have a life.
Cubicle with a shitty toshiba laptop, random Dell 24" monitor, and generic microsoft mouse and keyboard, and a VoIP Phone
That's literally everything in my cubicle
Spent 4 years getting a computer engineering degree to earn this rather empty cubicle. They do pay me a shite load of money, though, especially for a new grad
>tfw you will never work at IBM on it's golden age
Lift up our proud and loyal voices,
Sing out in accents strong and true,
With hearts and hands to you devoted,
And inspiration ever new;
Your ties of friendship cannot sever,
Your glory time will never stem,
We will toast a name that lives forever,
Hail to the I.B.M.
Our voices swell in admiration;
Of T. J. Watson proudly sing;
He'll ever be our inspiration,
To him our voices loudly ring;
The I.B.M. will sing the praises,
Of him who brought us world acclaim,
As the volume of our chorus raises,
Hail to his honored name.
I missed the happy question.
At this point, yes, the money is enough to get me through the monotony. I don't necessarily enjoy my job, but I'm not even close to wanting to blow my brains out yet
I guess, I'm kinda "meh" right now. Although, that's been my primary feeling for 5 years. Also I'm working in damned Telecom when I want to digital systems design
Thinkpad laptop, and some generic Dell desktop, a Lenovo monitor, and just a plain Microsoft mouse/keyboard. The best part of my cubicle is that the person in it before I came left their lava lamp.
Ubuntu gaming rig,3 Dell monitors, logitech trackball mouse and Leopold Otaku keyboard. I have CIS diploma, 13 courses away from graduation uni now. It's alight, really don't like the open floor plan as it's noisy as fuck.
That's what I'd like to know. I'd -assume- you could do it with certs and professional networking, at the cost of less pay.
I'd just like to be sure about which certs to invest my time into.
Why don't workplaces let you bring your own shit to work with? Why do they expect you to do shit on some shitty TN monitor, generic mouse, and a membrane keyboard when it would cost about 1/100 of a year's salary to get a decent setup?
Even Java is useless these days.
You need to know at least thirteen languages in order to be considered.
>be 18, living with parents
>cashier with no certs (uni next year)
>making $16/h, $23/h on Sundays
>work hard and save everything for 6 months
>go live overseas until the money runs out
>escape family and shit weather
Done this twice now. Just got back from two months in the Philippines on Sunday. Don't know where I'll go in December.
Oh for sure. I live in a town with a population of 3000 people, and this place is boring as fuck. I just felt the need to get away from the routine of studying and working for a bit.
You learn so much, and you have a blast of a time. I don't know so much about traveling by yourself though. Each time, I've met my girlfriend over there. Separate flights due to work shifts and shit.
I tried that once. It was a multi-language program that pulled content from several different sites and compiled it all into a readable database. It was rejected because the code was too difficult to follow.
so you basically work a shitty job like a dog for half a year saving every penny, and then go overseas to live in some exotic place (even though yo don't live as a rich man).
sweet, I wish I was American, where i live shit you have to steal in order to survive if you have a shit job
I've stuck around South East Asia so far, so I have lived pretty rich. I cam home this time with $1100 still (study reasons). I could have easily survived another month at least, even with the way I was spending. But yeah, you have the concept. Australian by the way.
I get Youth Allowance (for being a student) which is like $200 a fortnight, so I've set that up to be paid directly into mum's account. I buy my own food and shit, but I'll kick in $50 a week for bills and shit.
I tend to hold off booking until there's a decent sale on flights. Usually between ~AU$700 - AU$1000.
A+, Network+ (aka "CCNA without the Cisco specific turdery"), and Linux+/LPIC-1.
I'd been running an entire LAN at home with a bunch of Linux systems, various servers, etc. and hosted my own email on a VPS running OpenBSD before I got the DC Ops job, so presumably experience and skill mattered more than the certs.
Sorry, forgot to read the rest of the question. I don't work at all while I'm away, I live off the saved money. I usually look at short term rentals, which are typically around $1000 a month. For internet, I buy a local broadband SIM and put it in a portable WiFi hotspot. Usually where I stay, there's a restaurant near me that I can connect to if I need something more.
Not unless you're going for a pentester position. Debian, CentOS, Ubuntu, and *BSD are the server OSes to know. Windows Server takes like ten minutes to pick up on the job if you've already grokked unix.
Software developer for a small company. (36,000 USD a year)
No certs, CS dropout.
I'm pretty happy, I have full creative control over what I develop.
Tips and tricks: Idk, be lucky I guess.
My company allows us whatever peripherals we desire
