An IT career, without IT

By m.sastri ·
Hi all,

I have been working in an IT Services company (now for around 9 years). During these years, i have actually been only involved in functional areas, mostly around automotive and aerospace domains. I have not been able to work on any technology - Java, Dot Net, SAP etc. Although i have received training in C, i have hardly got to work in an production environment.

Now, i feel i need to start specialising in one particular technology. But, also a little concerned, if i am already too late to start now with a technology like Java or DotNet which has now become a very common skillset. I am not sure - mobile computing, cloud computing ...- which one can i start delving into. I am open to any, and that's the problem.

Could you please advise the technology which i could take up to train myself, with a potential demand say in the next 2-3 years. Or if there are any sought-after-these-days certifications (like the SAP ones) which i could take up.

Just thought of seeking some inputs from you guys, so that i have now some additional thoughts to think about.

I specialise and wanna persue a career in computer Hardware but all my university can teach me is Databasing and Networks... -_-; Lucky I'm very self-taught! ^^ I quote the IT crowd, "What does IT stand for...? ... What doesn't it stand for." XD

Take up study at home, do your own computer projects as a hobby, maybe?
it's how I taught myself Hardware, Diagnosis and Security/Networking. Even the maker of Minecraft, Notch, was doing it as a project - and he became a millionaire in a very short time. You might get lucky :)
