Hi guys! I’m Alayna Buysse and I am a software developer!

I started coding while a student in college. In my Intro to Mechanical Engineering class, I had to make a robot that used an Arduino. This was the first time I had ever really coded something and I happened to love it! The next semester I started my journey in computer science. I took a year of computer science courses where I learn basic computer science theory in Python and Java. Also during this year, I was able to work on side projects for a couple different companies. A year into my computer science major, I found Prime Digital Academy. Although I liked the theory I was learning in school, I wanted to learn more real world skills and hoped to shorten my schooling as it was getting rather expensive. Prime offered everything I was looking for in a school. Not only was I learning how to program on the MEAN stack, I was also developing my soft skills.

This Friday (July 14th), I will be graduating from Prime. I am so excited to start the next chapter of my life in the development world! To continue my learning, I will be starting with figuring out machine learning using Python. I plan on reading books from packtpub.com and updating this site with my progress!
