    I definitely want to learn the basics of JavaScript at some point. Once I start getting into it, I'll hit you up. Thanks for the offer.

    Oh for sure. So I'm more interested with the infrastructure/back end/server side of IT. So I guess like system administrator or network administrator type of positions? I am also learning to code...

    Oh for sure. So I'm more interested with the infrastructure/back end/server side of IT. So I guess like system administrator or network administrator type of positions?

    I am also learning to code C++ at the moment, but I'm not sure if that would come in handy for what I would like to do? What programming languages do you recommend learning? There are just so many and I'm not entirely sure which to go for.

    Thanks for the help, I hope this clarifies some things.

    Cool, in the class that I'm taking we are going over a lot of networking information and tech. Its based on the CompTIA Networking+ standards.

    I am currently taking a class that goes through the CompTIA Network+ exam curriculum. Would that be just as useful?

    As a kid, I had only really watched Dragon Ball Z and Pokemon. It wasn't until I got to high school that I really got into anime, as my friends were all into it as well. I think started with Cowboy Bebop as my first show, which was fucking amazing. After I finished that, I was hooked. Started watching more anime than american TV on a daily basis.

    Cool! I'll definitely check this out. Is it okay if I have somewhat of a beginners grasp of programming languages?

    I've recently started taking some IT and programming classes at a local college because I've always been interested in IT as a career but I've never had any sort of professional experience in the field. Are there any skills that I need to definitely know, or any sort of certifications that I can get in order to get my foot in the door and start applying for IT focused jobs?

    I definitely think so. Having a password manager makes things so much easier and secure. You can have nice, crazy long secure passwords for all your accounts and you only have to remember your one master password. Like others here have mentioned, KeePass or Lastpass are both good.

    On Android, I have been playing Mini Metro. It's a nice mix of puzzle and time based strategy as you need to expand the metro system farther in a limited amount of time before your previous stops and trains get overwhelmed. It also has a free build mode where you can spend time laying out the system of your dreams.
