Thank you very much to share your experience. It is really helpful to who is starting. I have read many times about to have a mentor, but honestly I don't know how could I find one, from where to start.
I am following some forums and websites, reading articles like yours to keep my selft on track, but some days are really hard. I studied something totaly diferent to programming, so I feel identify whit what you wrotte.
