Hi. I discovered dev.to from my 'corporate' Twitter feed (SW engineer at Gumstix and help out with marketing as gadget guru). I wrote my first 15-minute text based adventure in QBasic at the age of 9 and never looked back. I'm into HDL, HAL, OS, C/C++, making, learning and teaching.

On that note, IBM with its Call for Code initiative provided several tools and code examples for disaster prevention and nature conservation. Something you might want to take a look at.

Hello, world!

Hello dev.to community! I started making games on the TI-83 to make class more interesting back in middle school. I took a break in college and my 20's to become a rocket scientist. Turns out it only sounds cool. Now I'm getting back to my roots via a Thinkful bootcamp with a focus on the MERN stack. Hope to see some of y'all out in the wild!
