I’ve recently started in a new position with InterWorx. I’m now a Software Development Engineer! This has been something I’ve been working towards for a while and it’s finally here.
So, as seemingly happens over and over again: it’s been a while. A lot has occurred since I last posted nearly 9 months ago. Sheesh, I’m really bad at this blog-having thing.
Now that I’ve been in my new role as a Software Developer for a few months, it’s pretty clear that being a self-taught programmer has its advantages and disadvantages. That is not to say that being self-taught is better or worse than a traditional education. I believe they are just different. I thought I would outline the ones that I’ve experienced thus far.
