I feel like I studied the wrong pathway. I have a degree and I took all the programming courses to become a web or app developer. Initially, I was going to become a game developer though became concerned I'd have trouble finding work. I felt ambitious, not really knowing if it was the best direction.
But as I'm trying to develop a portfolio and become confident I feel like a job that wasn't so mentally demanding would be better, such as down the network path. Is a network administrator for example as mentally demanding as a web or app developer? I only have a vague idea of what they do.
Mentally demanding as in currently I have to research how to do something, understand the code, apply and adjust it to my situation, debug, etc. Then I have to remember where this section of code is to make this change, learn this new framework or whatever. On top of that I'd like to actually get up and have to do some physical work.
Aside from this, let's say I want to become a network administrator, is there any free online courses or lecture slides that I could read up on, instead of having to pay money to take some more courses? The employer is not going to know the difference?
