GitHub - bitcoinbrisbane/asic-bitcoin-miner: How to build

I want to leave IT support for programming; is it realistic for me?

Hello all,
I'm 24 years old and currently work as a technician in a data center. Several years ago, when I was finishing up my Associate's degree in networking technology, I was already losing interest in the field. I got an IT job 6 months after graduating, enjoyed it for a few months, and had a few projects that held my interest. Last year I moved to a bigger city and found another IT job - same situation (enjoyed it for a month or two but there isn't much holding my interest). The troubleshooting and break/fixing has become "same old, same old." Simple problems with simple solutions.
The things that I've noticed do tend to hold my interest are creating something, investigating a system (discovered a hacked system running a bitcoin miner that the legitimate owner knew nothing about), learning how computing systems really work (nand2tetris anyone?), and finding ways to automate or lazify routine tasks.
I've been told by my girlfriend, few close friends, family, etc that I would make a good programmer. I'm just worried that I'm going to suck at it. I've built a few rudimentary programs (parse a CSV file, a GUI calculator in visual studio, a Fibonacci counter, etc) and BASH/Batch scripts in the past and loved it. Loved my Java and PHP classes in college. But there are also times where I look at bigger snippets of code (open source and github projects come to mind) and get overwhelmed because I don't even know where to begin trying to understand how it all fits together. Is this something that improves with time?
I also have difficulty concentrating at times. I don't know if this is ADD/ADHD, my anxiety or just general tiredness, but it can be hard for me to focus so that's something else that concerns me about programming.
Basically I'm just wondering...I have enjoyed programming in the past, but I'm worried about my ability to focus or make sense of it all. Do you think this is a good transition for me to make?
And if I wanted to make this transition fairly quickly, what kind of positions should I look for?

Posts Tagged ‘Nand2tetris’ FPGA. 29Jun14. TL;DR Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) have been around for decades, but they’ve become a hot topic again. Intel recently announced Xeon chips with FPGAs added on, Microsoft are using FPGAs to speed up search on Bing, and there are Kickstarter projects such as miniSpartan6+ trying to bring asic-bitcoin-miner. How to build an ASIC SHA-256 miner. ##Nand to Tetris (nand2tetris.org) Quite a few years ago, I heard about this project. I've always wanted to complete the sylabus, but without a good goal, I find it hard to stay motivated. Now I know the same type of question (same task) has been asked on this site before, but I recently wrote my C++ implementation of the Hack Assembler from the Nand2Tetris Chapter 6 course (defined here).I'm not really looking for tips on solving the task itself, although these are appreciated as well. From a technical standpoint, I was responsible for implementing the parser, control flow, functions, and arrays. I volunteered to be the project leader since I had greater technical knowledge and experience with compilers than my teammates as a result of the Nand2Tetris project. Half-Fast: Bitcoin Miner Teams.
