As documented by Wyan Ryan
Previously I worked as a teacher of Computer Science and later decided to change to Software Development. But to my surprise, I realized that the course I did in 2007 was no longer in use. Numerous changes in technologies have been observed since then. Despite getting a job, I knew I could not give my hundred percent because of my lack of knowledge in this field. I wanted to improve in this area of Software Development and decided to take up a course in Simplilearn.
I Graduated from Clemson University with a Master’s Degree in Computer Science. Although I did pursue a Ph.D., I couldn’t finish it. Before becoming a full-time Computer Science teacher, I did a summer internship as a research assistant at NASA and worked in numerous other internships and jobs. I had worked for almost 8 years as a teacher when I decided to try software development. I have always wanted to try this field as a professional career. Even in my bachelor days, I worked as a freelancer and continued this for some time. Finally, ITW Hartness gave me the opportunity in 2019, and I became a software developer. I work with Smith Drug and am responsible for various tasks, from identifying and evaluating to looking after applications that perform particular tasks.
As times have changed, many new technologies have been introduced. As I stated earlier, the degree I did in 2007 was good, but it doesn’t deliver the requirements needed in today’s technologies. So it has been difficult for me to cope with the information. Also, the job interviews I attended asked me about certain technologies I didn’t know about. So, to tackle this knowledge gap, I decided to apply for a certification course. I really needed confidence in my interviews.
