So, I guess you can consider this my introduction to the coding world. I actually started learning to code in college when I took an 'Intro to Programming' course which focused heavily on object oriented programming languages such as C++. At that time, it was just an alternative class I took to get out of enrolling in Math, my arch nemesis.
I never thought I would ever pursue it as a career option even after the semester concluded and the class was over. However, it was actually that class that showed me I could enjoy doing something I found personally difficult (unlike Math, my arch nemesis).
So here we are some years later, and, when I think about coding, the "difficulty" intimidates me but I'm still excited to learn more. I "fear", no matter the effort, I'll never be as good as I want to be but I still jump at every chance to improve my skills.
I hope to gain an internship or apprenticeship at some point and learn on the job. I believe that will benefit me greatly. And, in time, maybe I, too, can call myself a Software Engineer.
That being said, "Hello World!" Let's get started...
