About 3 years ago, I was a project manager at a construction company and wanted to become a web developer. I went to an online coding boot camp similar to Thinkful so I can relate to exactly what many of you are doing. It was the best decision I ever made, you can't become a web developer by yourself. I have worked for several companies (AT&T, RTI, and Cisco) over the past several years in the Raleigh-Durham area of North Carolina. I am married to my beautiful wife, Janice, and we have 3 kids.
