Hi, all together. My name is Andy, 41, from Germany. I have always wanted to be this kind of world traveller now called digital nomad although have explored the right word for it just some time ago.
Nevertheless I did some extensive travelling in my life so far as for example backpacking overland from India through China and Russia home to Germany, all without thinking much about any online businesses, I was young, single and didn t need much, just working in all kinds of fields for some time.
Today I am married, have an 11 year old son and live in Germany. Still dreaming about the vagabondish lifestyle again and again. 4 years ago I started studying electrical engineering at a distance laerning university, got my bachelor s degree just a few days ago and now orienting myself where to continue. Got pretty deep into software development and programming during these years, learned a lot by myself onliine and practised during 2 internships and love the analytical, logical thinking work.
My plan is to become an expert in some niche of programming and to freelance and live at least partly the digital nomad dream. I m thinking about what niche to pick, where to put my efforts in and learn and practice, I cant be a jack of all trades in my situation. Any advice from nomads in the software field very appreciated.
Nice to meet you all
