Milestones

My road in life took a while to figure out.
In high school, a close adult figure was a computer engineer, sparking my interest in computers.
That interest led to my choice to major in Computer Science.
Then my first programming class struck me. I knew I wanted to program.
After graduation, I acquired a job creating desktop programs.
Moved to another company that taught me more.
I gained more interest in web development and found a job that allowed me to transition.
