6 Months Later & The Next 100 Days
From 2008 to 2016 I had the joy of being in the US Navy and part of an amazing group(family) called the Seabees. Even though I knew getting out was the right call, I suffered from depression because I just couldn't find a job that I enjoyed and wanted to do for the rest of my life.
Fast forward several years and several different jobs in different industries.....
Towards the end of my time there I started searching for the next step in my journey. I knew I wanted to learn more about programming but didn't know where to start. That's when I came across an organization called Apprenti.
After taking an assessment and interviewing, I was accepted into their Software Developer Apprentice Program that would be based in Columbus, Ohio. So I packed up the car with my belongings and cat, then headed to Columbus to start my training at Tech Elevator. It was here that I got to learn a lot about programming and a look at the challenges ahead of me in this career. These challenges are what really drew me in and captured my interest most. I got to learn Java, DbVisualizer, PostgreSQL, Spring, Vue.js, API, Eclipse, and Visual Studio Code.
I hope you all will continue to follow me on this journey!
