What initially sparked your interest in technology and what was the first programming language you learned?
In my first job out of college, I was eventually tasked with maintaining the website. This was my first exposure to coding and it got me thinking about pursuing it as a career option. HTML was the language.
What do you do now?
How did you develop the skillsets to get to where you are today? Did you have formal training or were you largely self-taught?
Kind of a combination, in the beginning I took a couple workshops but was mainly self-taught, lots of Googling. Then when I made the decision to switch careers, I enrolled at Prime Digital Academy and completed their bootcamp. That gave me a good jump start, and from there I’ve continued learning on my own and on the job (and there’s still plenty of Googling).
