My name is Olivier, I am 36 from Belgium.
I would love to have some advice from experienced developers.
About 3 years ago I started my journey into becoming a programmer. I started doing online courses as well as part time courses at the university. (micro degrees in Java and Computer Systems).
I am still working full time as a pilot though but with enough downtime.
My question: I have learned a lot from the last few years and my interest really jumps from subject to subject in the IT space. (web dev, java, linux, cloud computing, etc , etc) Whatever I am learning about becomes my focus and then when that course is finished I move on to something else. I don't necessarily want to dive into 1 subject but want to know "a bit of everything" in order to really have a good bird's eye view of all that's possible and one day build something great.
Now I have the feeling I am kind of getting stuck as Im not building expertise in one single area enough to start building projects etc. I am most comfortable following along with a tutorial but that's not the goal of course.
I suppose I should just start building a project instead of learning new stuff and not actually building things?
Any ideas on where/how to start with that ?
