I wrote that I was studying Software Development on a thread here the other day, and some Russian guy told me I'd be kicking myself for not getting "a real job that's actually needed, such as agriculture."
I can literally work in any field. There's software everywhere, developing software is not just about computers and electronics, every single industry needs it. If we're talking water works to supply a country with water, there is a lot of software involved to regulate that water. If we're talking agriculture, there's a lot of autonomous things that are done with software, and a lot of machines that are powered by software.
It's insane how blind some people can be about this stuff.
