Well, this is kind of awkward for me. This public display of affection (for coding).
I guess I decided on it being this way since no one forced me to start an online journal.
Hi, my name is Marcel. That is me up there. A pleasure to meet you.
I am here because I’ve decided to start a blog about my journey to application development, software engineering, web development, engineering, whatever term folks out there may use, I want to learn how to…
…in as many programming languages as possible.
Now this may not be much to start. As I have just embarked on this somewhat self righteous journey.
But it is enough for me, and other happy souls out there who have realized that they should have done this a long time ago and are realizing that now is the time and it “ain’t” too late.
If you’re curious about who I am and what I used to do, here is my bio:
I am the child of a former IBM programmer who loves to program in languages like C++, C#, and Java. He just so happened to teach me SQL before I went off to college. I was formerly a mortgage broker, purchasing manager for commodities, an IT/IS auditor, and an executive in sales. I love fashion, I am a freak about big data and its BIG BANG, know a bit about electric utilities: demand side management (DSM), business intelligence (BI), and data analytics. And of course I wouldn’t mind a clean energy future. That goes without saying.
At 25, I am an entrepreneur, I started a men’s accessories business, am a leader at theweighin.org, and I am taking up engineering at Harvard University.
I do not believe in having only one set path in life. When you plan on being awesome, you’re allowed to have as many paths as you like. As long as you enjoy every moment.
Look Mama I’m Coding is simply a blog about my journey to application development. I am officially a coding baby (again). Watch me grow.
For now, I’ll write a couple of entries either daily or a few times a day to share everything from accomplishments to frustrations on my journey to becoming an awesome codist.
I like the sound of that >>> CODIST. It actually sounds better than Programmer and it shows some kind of enthusiasm about coding. ( I think I just coined it or something.)
So… I don’t know which language I should tackle though I felt good practicing at Codecademy. I won’t write about the languages that I have already learned. I do want to write about languages that I am interested in learning more about. Because that makes sense for me.
After reading a few articles, Python is a good place to start in terms of application development.
So, here I go.
‘Til next time, let’s get coding,
