Hello guys

Posted 27 January 2015 - 10:46 AM

Hello guys, I have been coming to this community for a few months to look for help on stuff I am taking in school but just registered today. I am a 42 year old Newbie to programming, but have worked in IT for the past 14 years, most of which was spent on the IT Helpdesk side of things for a couple different companies. I also did about 4 years of server side administration, a job I really enjoyed but was moved away from my location.

I am 5 months into a 10 month program having finished modules on HTML/CSS, data modeling, MYSQL, Visual Basic, and now am 3 weeks into learning Java. I am finding it very challenging but I am enjoying it. I look forward to diving into this great community and learning lots more!

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

Welcome to Dream In Code!

Glad to see you are interested in getting started with coding, & not asking about obstacles you put in your own way.

Also hats off to you for doing help desk for so long. Though it's been close to 10 years, & maybe the industry has changed, but it was a thankless job when I had it. The entire company scorned at those whom were the bottom line foundation of technology support! Very thankful for the director that gave me my chance to advance into a developer role.

Looking forward to seeing you become a part of our community! :D :^:
