So in my effort to accumulate as much knowledge as I can soak up about the Web in my lifetime, I had stumbled across, or rather, an email came in to me about just that. I figure it is a sign from something telling me to actually do what is asked and see about getting some mentoring in some fashion.
In order to apply, all I ask is that you write a public post somewhere on the Web that discusses why you love the Web, where you’re at in your career, and what your goals are for the coming year. I’m not looking for a particular length or anything, just trying to get a sense of you, your passions, and your interests.
I love the web because since I got my first computer many moons ago, it has always been a passion of mine to create things. Whether it is a program that runs random numbers, or just make websites function and look good, I have always been fascinated with the technical aspects of the Web.
I’m at the point in my career where I am doing tech support for a web based application my company created and which other companies use daily. I am updating a 15 year old website and an 18 year old web based application UI as well. I’m usually glued to a laptop during the course of my day.
I just want to create things on the Web. I just have that passion still. After five “burn outs” I still keep going. CodeSchool, Free Code Camp, Codecademy, Udemy, etc.,etc. the drive for knowledge still has me in its clutches.
My last AEA was 2008. I want to go back desperately this year. I want to keep learning until my children send me into a home, or even when I finally take that dirt nap I hear about. I just want to keep learning. Learning from a mentor willing to give back as prominent in my mind as this person would just be another highlight in my professional life.Loading Likes...
