My affinity for software development steadily increased as I recalled the enthusiastic curiosity sparked during web projects in college and during opportunities of maintaining production websites. Out of my admirable passion to create and build things using code, I made a personal promise and commitment to learn software development and become a software developer.
After spending over two decades in IT, I was stuck in a rut. I had essentially supported the same app and performed the same duties for the last 7 years. The tools and processes that I was using were outdated and antiquated. It was at this point I decided to make a monumental change to get out of my mid-career slump. Although I was learning new individual skills and syntax, I was unable to build a fully integrated functional project. This is where Code Career Academy came in.
Leon Moore, an individual that fell in love with Web Development during my undergraduate days. While that first Web Development course changed my life, I've been studying coding ever since. My goals are creating software and apps that changes lives and how others function in today's society. Making life easier for my peers with what I create is my primary goal. While I just started taking this hobby seriously, please check out my GitHub to show my growth within the industry.
Having set my mind on pursuing a career in web development, I started at a local technical college. While completing a degree program at Gwinnett Technical College, I realized I needed to sharpen up my hands on skills. I felt like I need something to fill in the gaps a traditional educational approach left. As a result, I came in contact with Code Career Academy.
