When starting something new… ask the experts!
Ever since graduating college, I’ve always had an interest in technology. In fact, it probably started before college when I got my first Commodore 64. However, a busy life and other hobbies have always led me to pursue those passions over my technological curiosity. Well, now that I’m in a great place in my life to explore other venues and really use my creativity to explore…I want to know where to start!
So, I went to Google (of course!).

Now that I’m learning the basics, I need a place to practice and write code. So again, I reach out to Google and discover various articles glamorizing each application.
