My journey began several years ago...
I have always wanted to learn how to program apps and build websites but I never thought that I could do that for a living. I didn't make the connection until I took my first elective course in C++ programming. At the end of that class
I remember calling a friend and mentor of mine. He is a senior developer and had been programming for over twenty years at that point. I started the conversation with him to ask him what it would look like to become a software
engineer. From then on I began to study and practice by earning a certificates in Java and computer information systems in school. I also worked outside of school leveraging online tools like https://teamtreehouse.com/, http://exercism.io/,
and https://www.freecodecamp.org/. I used these resources to supplement my time outside of school so that I would continue to grow.
After I finished my certificates I spent the better part of a year exploring Swift for iOS development. It was near the end of that year that I was approached for my first internship. During this internship I have had the world of
the web technologies really opened up to me. That is why I am such a huge fan of the below frameworks that I would like to learn more about. I think that the future of the web will be reshaped by VR/AR and that toolsets like A-Frame
will help make that a reality with a very low barrier to entry.
Ionic has a lot of crossover with Angular which I already love quite a bit as a framework so it is a natural extension in order to reach both of the dominant mobile phone ecosystems.
