GOING FOR THE GAME CHANGER

I’ve dedicated my life to my family.  This chapter of my story is for me.

I dedicated my life to my family over the last thirteen years. I needed a game-changer to reenter the workforce and start a new chapter in my story. I chose the MAX Coding & Career Bootcamp to pursue my passion for technology.  I lacked exposure to technology but I’ve always been fascinated by it. After sitting down with my MAX Advisor I knew coding could be a pursuit of passion for me.  

Since successfully completing the Full Stack Java Developer Bootcamp, I have been exploring enhancing my skills in software development.  I have been taking additional classes on JavaScript to support my exposure to JavaScript I received at MAX Technical Training and have many more languages and topics on my list to tackle. 

I was lucky enough to take part in doing pro bono developer work on a website for The Momentum Developer Conference.  I gained experience that can be duplicated in the workplace, working remotely on a team using a Kanban board and participating in Stand-Up meetings, acting as Scrum Master.

 

UNDERSTANDING MY STRENGTHS

College educated, bootcamp graduate, and life-long learner. 

I was thrilled to get into software development because the technology was a weakness for me and I took that on as a challenge.  This is the only field I can see myself working in and I owe it to one of my Gallup Strengths being a Learner- when do you stop learning in software development?  Never!  This field is such an interest to me that I’m having trouble pinning down a particular language or area of interest at the moment, however, I’m leaning 60/40, with 60 being front end and 40 being back end.  Good thing I took a Full Stack Course!

Technologies and languages on my radar (outside of those I learned in the bootcamp at MAX) currently include AWS/Cloud, React, ServiceNow, and UI/UX Design.  I’m hoping to become employed with an employer that is supportive of continuing education and staying on the edge of developing technologies.

GET TO KNOW ME IN MY POWER MESSAGE

Take two minutes to get to know me and my journey.

 

GET TO KNOW ME

WHAT WAS YOUR FAVORITE TECH IN THE BOOTCAMP?
I gravitated towards the deployment and delivery of the overall app. Scrum really spoke to me as an engineer. Understanding the team dynamics required to deliver the app to market and looking for efficiencies that don’t sacrifice quality.

WHAT DOES YOUR CAREER TRANSITION MEAN TO YOUR FAMILY?
A career in software development would be a game-changer for my family and this is another reason I chose technology as my career field.  I do have a history of French Education in my college career, however, when I addressed my career trajectory when I decided to get back into the workforce, I realized I’d rather use French as a leisure activity instead of as a career- although combining both would be welcome!

WHAT ARE YOU DOING WHEN YOUR NOT CODING?
Thinking about coding.  Okay, that’s a little humor. I’m spending time with my family and now handling virtual school and trying to create connecting activities during the pandemic. We love to watch old game shows together and make our family secret spaghetti. 

SEE FOR YOURSELF

In my full-stack bootcamp I compiled a significant amount of code in my GitHub and my Capstone Project is a functional example of my application development capability. Click below to see my GitHub, check out my LinkedIn profile, or download my resume.
