First post! Took me forever to muster the courage to post anything.
So, out of the blue, I've been accepted to study Master of Data Science in Uni! My educational and professional background is in Graphic Design (what?), and I thought (on a whim) that I could apply to the degree and see what happened.
It's not that I don't like design, I love it! I've just always felt that I had a place in the Tech world too. I started off designing websites, then moved onto actually developing them the way I want. I recently started playing with PHP and built my first client portal using the Google Analytics API. "Talking" to computers is such a thrill for me and I want to keep doing it.
I'm super excited to embark on this journey, but I'm also shaking in me boots because it's all so extremely new for me. I'd love to grab any and all tips that can help me in this completely new experience for me, or hear some stories of people who have made choices similar to mine.
