My personal laptop is about 8 years old, and is not capable of working on projects in my new field. I am trying to take the plunge, and purchase a Macbook, as they are Unix-based, and play nicer with a lot of development tools.
Born and raised in Alaska, I developed a passion for development and coding after the launch Halo: CE. Wanting to discover how that gaming magic was made set me on the path I am finally returning to. I joined the Alaska Air National Guard in 2014 as a Client Systems Technician, and have spent the last 8 years working Tier I Help Desk... close to my dream, but not close enough. Finally have the opportunity to jump feet first into the development world through Level Up In Tech. Excited to begin the next stage of my career, and get that much closer to living out my dream. I now build Cloud DevOps projects and various programming write-ups.
