My name is Kevin. I’m a self-taught programmer, but it was a long road to get here.
I’ve had quite a variety of jobs. Bartender, construction helper, I worked offshore for a little while as an ROV (remotely operated vehicle) helper, and I installed cable for DirecTV. My longest stint was as a CNC machinist, wherein we’d take a chunk of metal and turn it into something useful. I picked up on the programming aspect of it extremely quickly.
I’m glad I had a bit of an unconventional journey to becoming a programmer, and hopefully I can help guide others on that journey as well.
