Folks ask me about the paths I took to becoming a Software Engineer. Trust me, I don’t know how. I winged it & I got here. My mother still cringes that I am not a Medical Doctor. Maybe I still do too. 😂
Nonetheless, for the benefit of those who’d need some information,...
... this is what I think it is:
My path wasn’t the quintessential one; I wasn’t gifted a Commodore 64 when I was 5. I didn’t know what a programming language was until I was 19. I know how to do most things because I self-study, including programming.
I bought a Java text to study when my University went on an indefinite strike; I needed to occupy my time with something productive.
I studied this text and practised the questions therein. pic.twitter.com/lMIX0x4gSm
