When I was five, my kindergarten teacher sent me home with a note on my report card that said I talked too much. When I was fifteen, a teacher wrote on a progress report that I was “reticent.” As an adult I find myself somewhere between those extremes.
I'm an elder millennial, which means I'm both old enough to have been writing online and building websites for most of my life and to clearly remember a time before the wider adoption of the Internet. After a post-grad school career in marketing communications, I attended a software engineering bootcamp in 2014 and have been slinging code full-time ever since. I've written Erlang, Python, and now Go for production.
