I was once serious about a career in programming (been programming as a hobbyist since my early teens which was so far in the past I used assembly, BASIC and machine code) and took a few courses, including at degree level, to give me a boost up and bring me up-to-date. I even started applying for jobs and generally did well (getting to the final round on several occasions to fall down in the end due to some small gap in my knowledge and/or experience) but I quickly lost interest when I saw what was on offer, in particular the working conditions and the somewhat 'psychopathic' methods used for recruitment. However, I do code as a small but interesting part of my current job as a self-employed academic and I have no regrets about deciding against a programming career. Coding increases my current earning potential and job satisfaction. My point is: there are more ways to enjoy coding then a '24/7' job.
