右撇子:做Android Developer可行吗?
送交者: 右撇子 2017年01月19日11:24:41 于 [新 大 陆] 发送悄悄话

做Android Developer可行吗?


我现在也有个职业选择方向的问题,请朋友们提供一点建议. 希望这次不会再犯政治正确的错误了!

 

以前我干的老本行目前在加拿大不景气,工作机会很少。但美国有,如果自己愿意,几乎不会有问题。因为我以前工作的加拿大公司收购了一家美国公司,后来加拿大公司把大部分业务都转到了美国公司去了。当年我就是因为家中有老,不想去美国公司工作才被裁掉的。目前公司的高层我大多都认识。我也曾在美国公司做过一段时间,对那里的情况也算是熟悉的。我在两地工作加起来的时间超过了10年。前段时间我跟公司试探联系过,有个高管打电话告诉我,说有事找他就好了。因为我过去的经验在北美算是偏冷的,我不容易找其它机会,同样他们也不容易找到象我这样的人。因此,双方碰到一起时,反而合作的可能性更大。但是,过去我自己是有点不喜欢干这一行。曾经想转行。我喜欢电脑编程。早在2000年,我就利用业余时间参加了Computer  Programming 培训。但因为工作忙,最后没做project,结果没拿到证书。但后来自己去考Java Programmer Certificate。还做过两个contract project。至少把学费赚回来了!后来遇到911,IT机会少了很多,我只好回头干我老本行了。

 

但在我干老本行期间,我一直没有完全放弃对编程的兴趣。期间前后15年时间里,我前后做过十几个形形色色的projects(见下面),当然都是自己搞自己用的,并没有真正地在商业上应用。因此我的编程经验肯定比初学者好多了,但是比senior肯定也差一节。我的主要经验在Java,两年前开始用Android。因为Android 和Java 是几乎一样的,只是开发平台不同,所以上手对我来说很容易。几个月前,我做了两个Android projects,都放到Google Play Store 上面去了。IT专家们说移动应用将是未来十年发展的重点,现在Android 工作机会也非常多。我想往这方面努力。但考虑到自己的年纪,不知道这种想法是否可行?大多数人的意见是我应该干我的老本行去,理由似乎也是非常充分的。老本行可靠稳定。Android编程是年轻人干的活。但做我老本行有一个问题,需要搬家去美国,我家里有老人,跟我去美国没身份,没医保,这是个巨大的障碍!所以,做Android对我似乎又是一个不二的选择。在我业余时间里,我做起编程来会入迷,可以说是我的真正兴趣所在。但不利和限制因素显然也有,主要就是年龄。我50出头了。这个年龄真不应该干这行了,但我对此的确感兴趣啊!另外,我也没有在IT公司干过。我的resume看上去似乎非常吸引人,因为我做过的projects不少,只是都是自己用。说难听一点,质量可疑!几个中介也找过我。去年也得到一次Java的interview机会。但当他们知道我没有在IT公司干过,我编过的软件也没有在商业上应用时,他们就犹豫了。后来又得到一次Interview机会,但他们找的是Android developer,当时我虽然有Android 知识,但没做过任何Android project。正因为如此,我感到现在Android developer 需求很大。所以从那以后,自己赶做了两个Android app放到网上去了。有一个中介看到了,三个月前找过我,但当时我似乎已经放弃了做IT的念头了,所有没有回复。我都已经准备好适当时候去找以前的老板,做我的老本行去了。但两天前这个中介又找我了,所以现在我似乎又然起了做IT的希望。如果这个行,我就不需要搬家,这是比较好的结果。但象我这样的情况,做编程,虽然我喜欢,但合适吗?有前途吗?我越来越感到困惑。

 

我知道万维藏龙卧虎,有很多人都在干IT这一行,我相信他们可以帮我提供很多有价值的建议。先谢谢了!

 

另外,我刚刚完成再就业培训。拿到的是 Computer Networking Diploma. 当时很想学progrmming之类的,但这些培训是不受政府支持的,所以只好找个相关的 Networking。但我对找computer networking工作不感兴趣,虽然我培训的所有成绩都是A,除非有现成的networking 机会等着我。

 

以下是我曾经做过的projects:
