My name is Des Mayer, a 27 year old family guy and gamer who would be classed as a “bedroom programmer”. My current work position is so far from my skill set I sometimes wonder how I managed to keep the position.
Since the first time I used a computer I always wanted to understand how they worked and how to manipulate data. With this in mind during high school I begun to learn how to code. This took me on a journey through many programming languages including Pascal, VBA.net and JAVA. Even through the multiple languages I found that I enjoyed solving problems through lines upon lines of code.
My problem now is that I have learnt a few languages through my education but have not have reason to use them at work or in my personal life. This has to change. So it will!
I have set myself a goal for the next 12 months. that is to learn new languages and to build upon the languages that I already know. Luckily, whilst looking through a few charity shops I stumbled upon study guides for C++ and Python so it looks like those will be my first new languages to master.
In the end what does this mean? I want to be a programmer and in 12 months this blog should hopefully contain my journey through many different languages along with many new projects added to my portfolio.
Until next time.
