It's Summer.

I'm anxious to be building my career as a software developer because it will shift away from my current work as a computer science instructor at a high school.

Teaching is one thing and at times I love it, but I want to build apps.

I've been fascinated with computers for ever since I was a pre-teen. I don't see myself teaching for the rest of my life, but I do see myself more in software.

I am challenged with getting my name out there. Also, I am struggling with knowing exactly what tech or skills I should be acquiring to work in this rapidly evolving industry.

Widgets Project Idea

I am currently beginning the planning of a web application that will serve a single-page of useful widgets. These will be draggable, uniquely designed, and able to be customized by the user to suit their needs. This web app can be accessed from any platform and will contain widgets like weather, notes, calculator, to-do list, news, etc. The app will require a login.
