Hi, I'm Mizuho Okimoto!
I'm a junior programmer, and student in my 5th semester, at Seneca College in Toronto, Canada. One of my current courses, Open Source Development(OSD600), gave me a great opportunity to write blogs here.
First of all, let me introduce myself!
Before I came to Toronto, I lived in Japan. I worked as a human resource consultant, where my role included providing websites and human resource management systems and collecting and analyzing data. At the time I wished I could build websites and software myself for my clients, to improve their business issues.
After my one-year Canadian visa expired, I was going to go back to Japan, but I have decided to make a change and achieve my wish.
I chose the OSD600 course as one of my optional courses because when I attended a career session to find my Co-op job, all of the Seneca students who worked for the company recommended us to take the course by David Humphrey. After I watched his first lecture video on YouTube, I was fascinated by the course concepts.
He said we have to write a bunch of code, and it's challenging, so I'm still worried if I can do it. However, I thought if I didn't challenge myself during school, there was no way to improve my skills.
As part of the tasks I forked the following Open Source repository on GitHub.

Finally, I'm working on creating my portfolio which is approximately 3/4 complete. Please take a look :D
Thank you for reading my first blog. See you soon!
