"I had always been involved with the infrastructure side of things, but not actually building web applications. I dabbled in it and hacked different pieces together, and I’d seen different languages and a little bit of code here and there, but I could never really connect all the dots together. I knew I needed to take my skills to the next level."

"I wanted to take a chunk of time and focus deeply on a skill that I really wanted to have in my toolset — Web Development. I wanted to create applications."
