Thinking of pursuing a career in IT?

I am a graduate of mathematics from a Turkish university and I'm interested in computer programming languages, but I'm not sure whether all this IT business is appropriate for me. I guess I don't know where to start. What would you suggest/recommend?

I would suggest that you experiment by sitting for eight hours a day staring at a computer screen. If you find that this is not too underwhelming, you may be a prime candidate for IT. Seriously, I would suggest a few computer science courses to get a taste of the industry and then make your decision.
