Started to learn code using Python last December. I shall be 52 next month. I am a mental health nurse with experience in risk management, inspection and regulation. I am not looking to switch careers. I aspire though to use code to solve problems, be more efficient and use data more effectively within health and social care settings. Good luck in your journey. Where are you planning to go with it?

I am looking to switch careers. I had reached a point in dentistry where I couldn't really make more money and just wasn't challenged anymore.
