i have the same exact problem. i'm trying to go through edx's linux course right now to learn the nitty-gritty terminal stuff i don't know, and then on to python. i keep going on /g/ and bookmarking threads and never getting anything done. i've had this problem since middle school. wasting time on bullshit and never getting anything done, reading other people's shitpost and opinions instead of actually learning. yeah i know ABOUT a ton of programs and cool little things people post on /g/, but i don't actually KNOW any of it. i hate it so much.
I hear that some people exercise when they have that problem. Full body calisthetics (body weight) workout keeps the energy level down enough to focus with whatever's leftover.
YMMV but try to start every day with 30-60 minutes of reading or coding. First thing. Before literally anything else. It helped me a lot.
I started Sicp, in the middle of the first chapter. Do you guys do all the exercises when you read books with them, or what percentage?

How will I land my first helpdesk job if I currently work in a different field? (food)?
anyone ?
yo i will give you a resource. no prior knowledge needed. should take you 1 or 2 months to finish, if you are not a brainlet or a coomer.
no testbooks, registration, switch and bait course shilling, ads or any other e whoring shit. all you need is a fucking ide and the time to finish the course. follow the gitbook and click on the accompanying videos.
This is really handy. Thanks anon.

elaborate on your statement
Time to take the waterfox pill, brother.
Firefox also does this when downloading any crack. Most software is designed for idiots (zoomers and actual boomers). Just disable it.

Considering Google changes their API every 5 minutes or so, the version from the default Ubuntu/Debian repositories is dated as fuck. Use git instead and clone upstream.
Waterfox has been bought by some advertising company. Just use the tor browser (with or without tor itself).
>they literally copied google
Which isn't something bad in the eyes of the average Joe.
>and then proceed to blame google for their decline
Google pushed and pushes Chrome like there's no tomorrow. It effectively replaced shady toolbars as sneaky 3rd party installs. Even some driver installers come with it for Christ's sake.

Is it worth trying to learn programming? I'm talking about learning it in your spare time at home, rather than going to school for it. I'm 28 and I've no training in programming at all, but I always found the idea of it fascinating. I know that it would take a very long time to master something, and being self taught might never earn you any sort of career from it at all - but it just seems like a cool thing to do, and I find myself with a lot of free time presently. Or, would it be a waste of time and should I spend my time trying to learn/train in something else? Also, if I were to start what would be a good language to pick for a beginner? Pic unrelated

I have the same feeling as OP, used computers since I was 7 (2003) but never thought about programming, now I'm kinda interested, but I don't have the idea of what can I do with programming.
I don't want to develop cash grab mobile games, and I don't feel like working for website companies.

So what can I do with programing? What does actual programmers work with?
No it's not worth it. The only excuse to ever learn coding is when you need it to accomplish a goal. People who make it their goal to learn coding for coding's sake end up as code monkeys developing unnecessary software.
Unironically just install scratch and mess with it for a bit. It's a visual programming language aimed at kids, but it's a fun way to test the waters of programming even if you're an adult. You'll soon know whether or not you want to pursue this hobby more seriously and learn a real language. If you do, with your particular mindset I'd suggest you learn python.

I self started seriously learned programming when I was 33, it took times to understand with programming.

The benifit of learning programming, it also improve your mind and the way of thinking.

144 on fortnite isnt anything special. Fortnite is a really easy modern day game to run because it's highly optimized and not as graphic intense as most modern tittles.
Stuff like that should get you banned from any second-hand market platform.
offer him $50, and thats generous
no way that piece of shit can hold a steady 144fps in fortnite, or any game that came out in the last 5 years. he is lying you dumb retards
it's gweilo, not gaijin.

Our job is so easy desu.
Only normies still think that it's complicated.
One day businesses are going to realize they're getting robbed by phony devs and will start cracking down, and it will be thanks to shitheads like this. Have fun doing a whiteboard interview for a $40k entry level webdev position.
Indeed, it's pretty easy when you are the one writing the initial code.
Everyone can be a code monkey you fucko.

It can becomes extremely hard when you have to maitain a huge legacy application with a lot of technical debt.
>he thinks spending his time cleaning up chad's shit makes him worth more
all that matters is getting things done
Sounds like they're happy enough.
