GeneralQuestions on getting into the coding world and gig work Pin

Hi everyone,

I should start by saying I am not a coder and know nothing about it. I currently work construction. I like my job, and I make a decent living, but construction can be "feast or famine," and layoffs are not uncommon.

Gig work would be an ideal way for me to supplement or replace my income during the slow times. A career in computer science could also be a good transition for me when my body will no longer tolerate the rigors of construction work.

For now though, as I stated above, I am mainly interested in setting myself up to be able to do gig work. Has anyone on here done any gig work? If so, I would love to hear your opinion on it.

I am considering going to school online to earn a degree in some type of computer science. Any opinions about which disciplines are best for the type of work I'm looking to do? Any recommendations for schools? Any I should stay away from? I was searching online, and am thinking [DELETED] may be a good option. Any opinions on that?

Thank you for reading this. I know I have a lot of questions, and I hope I posted this in the appropriate place. Any advice or opinions would be much appreciated!
