Hello and thank you for reading my post! I'm definitely new to talking about my journey so all of this will have a learning curve for me, but I'm very excited to give it a shot. Since this is my very first post, I wanted to go ahead and give a little info about myself, what I'm currently doing, and what I'm working towards. My name is Alfonso, but I usually go by Fonzie. I grew up in El Paso, TX but now I live in Seattle, WA. I'm 24 years old as of this post and I'm a college drop out. As much as I wanted to finish college and get a degree, it just wasn't for me.

Luckily, after moving to Seattle, I've been fortunate enough to able to start a Bootcamp at Flatiron School for software engineering which I'm currently still attending. I've already met so many amazing people and have learned quite a lot in the last few weeks. Going forward, I will definitely start posting about things that I've learned or in the process of learning, things that are difficult to understand, cool features that intrigued me and basically anything related to programming because someone out there might find the information useful and I like the idea of helping others even if it might only be one person. Also, even though I'm still very much a beginner, don't be afraid to reach out if there's something I talk about that you maybe need help on or maybe you know a much better solution, I would love to learn better practices and things I can improve on. Or, neither of those apply and maybe you just want to connect, that's fine too! I love connecting with people, hearing their stories and making new friends!

Finally to finish things off, I want to talk a little about where I want to be after graduating Bootcamp and possibly where I want to be in a few years. After graduating, I hope to be able to find a job working as either a fullstack, front-end, or back-end web developer. Preferably I would want to do fullstack but I'm really ok with any option. And while I really do like web development, my true goal for the future would be to become a game developer. Hopefully after a few years I will be able to branch off and work as a game developer. I really like the idea of creating an entire game by myself also but I would really only do that on my spare time.
Thank you for reading and if you want to follow my journey, feel free to Follow and I'll try and do the same!

Hello Alfonso

Congrats for writing that first post.
Without it, all the better one that will come after could have never existed.

Good luck for your next articles!
