  • There is a huge difference between becoming a DBA, where you would administer databases so you would spend your time giving commands to the computers, and being a Java/Android developer, where you would spend your time writing and debugging code. So what is your vocation? Do you want to write code? Or do you prefer to spend time monitoring computers, changing configuration options, making backups and so on? Or in other words, do you want to be a developer or an administrator?

    If you really don't know, and both alternatives look attractive to you, then go to a site that advertises job opportunities and cont the number of ads that match each of your choices. Then go for the one that is in greatest demand. But I think that you really should have a better idea as to what you want to be doing in the future before you make such a decission.
