Featured Developer Student for May 2018

Featured Developer Student for May 2018

I thought when I grew up I was going to be in the accounting/law field, but during school at Missouri Western State College the programming bug caught ahold of me.  I received a BS in Computer Science and Mathematics and went to work as a programmer in the airline/travel industry.   I love coming up with solutions for customers.

Q&A

Q: Why did you decide to come to Centriq?
A: After working programming in the mainframe environment, I found I needed to update my technology knowledge.  I had many ex-co-workers attend Centriq and enjoy it.  I knew that the 4-month program would be a perfect fit for my update.  I love that the classes are small, so there is great one-on-one contact with the instructors.

Q: What class has been your favorite so far?
A: I would say my favorite class has been SQL.  I love the structure of data and being able to manipulate it which then leads right into the MVC and Data integration!

Q: What do you hope to do after Centriq?
A: I would love to be able to dive right into a development job that will be able to strengthen my newly learned skills as a full-stack developer.

Q: What other hobbies and interests do you have?
A: I am an avid reader.  I love to get lost in a great fiction book.  I also have been enjoying experiencing the parkway system in St Joseph by way of the walking trails.
