I am 26 years old now. I am thinking what role I will be when I become 30 years old. I have started to think and plan my fututure. I need a more clean career goal. Moreover, the time is running out, I need to learn more about software eng. I think 30 years old is time to hit another stage.
I saw a lot of young people got their fancy mobile phone. My one is very simple one. It can't take photo and play MP3. But It only cost around $100. That's much cheaper. Moreover, I won't be happy about the features of those kinds of fancy mobile phone. If I want a MP3 player, I will buy a MP3 player. I need to take photo I will buy a camera. Mobile phone is mobile phone. I need it to make calls.
My hard disk space is running of space. I am thinking NAS Appliances. I have shopped around AUD$300-500. That's quite a lot for myself. Well, I don't want to spend that much only to solve a disk storage problem. I have calculated to buy a cheap computer, that's around $600. I made a decision to buy a new computer and install a Linux. I can solve the problem of disk space and a new development server.
I have talked a number of graduates. They are not good at selling themselves. Most of them said they have not any work experiences. No, they have some practical experiences. For example, they setup their own home network. This is a kind of networking experiences. When they did their university projects to build some software, this is also a kind of software development. They can put those details into their resume.
