Each month we are profiling one of our Web Services team members. This month we hear all about Kevin!
How did you enter this career?
My first course in Java and Object-Oriented Programming ignited my interest in computer programming. The manner that data might be input and changed through computational operations to generate a desired output instantly drew my attention. I felt more and more driven as the course went on to incorporate the abilities, I was picking up in the little lab programs into a cohesive product.
Making a Java game was one project that stands out in my memory since it required me to use my object-oriented programming skills to solve a practical issue. My love of programming has only grown stronger because of this experience, which motivated me to continue my education in the subject.
