Vince G, That would be the greatest thing in the world, to just be able to sit there and play music all day long..and have people listening, and going on tour, and just making music......biggrin.gif and getting paid to do it biggrin.gif, the getting paid part is the extra add on tongue.gif

and its not about really that you get replaced with new bands or anything, its just making music is what counts biggrin.gif, not the money or anything, and it doesnt take peoples souls away from them, thats only the people who are in it for the money, and not the music...they dont have a real passion for music..its all about the money for them

Well its good that you wanted to do that for a living but id end up blowing my head off if i did. Id prolly even post my music for free in the internet because as much as i love music, its only a hobby for me. Film director would be a dream come true though.

QUOTE (Pavel @ May 1 2007, 04:44 PM) *
OK i see a lot of IT involved workers here! May i ask you something?
I wonder how much of work did you learn at university - or to say better - how big your knowledge of the subject was before you started to work in IT?

Did you know a lot of IT when you started working or you learned a lot at work?? I am asking because as i said university here sucks so we don't learn too much of things there!


I have almost five years of IT-studies (well, some courses where economics and such, but they were part of the degree) and I must say that what it mostly gave me was time to learn stuff by myself smile.gif
Still, I wouldn't want to undo these studies in any way. Attending university and getting a degree gives you credibility, a chance to learn how to work well in groups, contacts that might prove useful in the future, and, as I said, time to learn stuff by yourself (you can often be inspired for this by the courses you take - and what these courses are missing).

Also, in sweden at least, most IT related companies prefer to hire people with an university degree. But this is mainly because that way they'll know that they are commited and have learned to work well in groups. Sometimes, the actual type of degree matters less: I know people who work with IT in sweden (and england) and whose education doesn't really match the job description at all.

In sweden this gets more and more true, as we are having major recruitment problems to our IT-universities right now. To be honest, I think that when you finish your degree, you could probably go to Stockholm and get a quite well-payed job as a IT-consultant quite easily. Especially if Croatia has joined the EU by then.
And hey, that way you could jam with Kris every now and when as well smile.gif

Good luck to you with the rest of your studies!
