I wrote my first line of code five years ago during my first semester studying mechanical engineering. It was C, and the very first assignment had me feeling like:
A few years later, I landed my first internship at a small software start-up developing an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software for manufacturing companies.
In my last year of university, I had an idea. With two other university students, I pitched to a startup incubator at University of Toronto, the Hatchery, and got accepted. Neither of us had any web development experience, but we were hungry to learn. With no idea what we were getting ourselves into, I started by building my first ever website. It was a simple landing page, but ever since then, I've been obsessed with all things web.
So where am I right now? I currently work at Deloitte Digital, a full-service digital firm, where I help tackle all sorts of digital challenges big and small. In my current project, I'm developing a single-page application for Sonnet Insurance, a major P&C insurance company, using Rails to build a JSON REST API that interacts with an AngularJS front-end.
