New Web Development Student
What the hell was I thinking? I started on this IT / Technology journey in 2014, when I took the Network+ workshops from Rackspace’s Cloud Academy in San Antonio. Yes, the program is very affordable, but financially I needed to get out of debt so, I used my Post 9/11 GI Bill and attended Airstreams Energy Renewal in Tehachapi, CA. I worked as a wind turbine technician for a year and a half. The job provided good income and travel to very rural areas of the country. That job exposed me to a lot of experiences that I would have never been exposed to before, so I do not regret the decision.
In 2016, I did the Network+ workshops again. While attempting to study for the certification, I knew I did not like it. I started looking around for something else in IT or Technology that did not involve going to college for two to four years. I already have a bachelor’s degree. I found General Assembly on the Veterans Affairs website. I remembered I tried to code a little on Code Academy and I did get it, but I little the ability to create.
