In my short time in this field, I have found computer science to be one of the most rewarding, interesting, and fulfilling fields out there. Lots of people for various reasons seem reluctant or uninterested in giving this career a chance. I’m hoping to change people’s minds so that they give coding/software development a chance.

For any non software developers reading this, a merge/pull request is a way to check in your code source changes to another branch that is shared by developers and teammates. Merge requests are great for developers to collaborate and visualize changes before merging code. You can leave comments, correct errors, and a number of other things.
Over my career, this is one area…
Software Developer with interest in new tech, education, and writing. My goal is to connect with other developers and bring more people into the tech field.
