    Hey, i just graduated from highschool and decided to take engineering in college with no intrest in any careers. First year engineering required me to take computer science (Java programmer), and i loved it! Since taking this course ive been leaning towards getting a career in a programming/ software engineering. I know theres lots of 12 year olds, let alone people my age, these days that can program very well, so i guess i have alot of catchup to do.
    Am i too far behind, will it be possible?

    any suggestions are appreciated,
    (usually joining a forum that deals with the topic is a good way to start :))

    thanks,
    Braydon

    Nope, Its never too late to start and the good thing is you have started. Dont think you have lacked any time but think that you have started on the path where many did not.
