Hi, I'm John! I'm a nerd who loves to create and organize things with code.
I've been around programming and computers since I was a kid. Growing up in Argentina, I remember learning programming basics using "Logo" in primary school 🐢🤓.
When I was 12, in the era when PC's blue screen of death was appearing daily in my Windows 98 machine, I was asking my parents to buy me Linux magazines, trying to understand how it worked and how to install it.
Growing up, I never thought that I could actually study computing professionally. Nobody I knew was into computers. And so my computer skills was relegated to helping my parents "program" the VCR and later (when I convinced my parents to get internet - big day) to fix the internet connection.
Fast forward to 2018, and I'm living in Canada, married, and working as a massage therapist. One day, coming home from work with a hurting body, I realized that I'm much happier with my hands on a keyboard than massaging bodies.
It dawned on me after seeing an ad for a coding bootcamp that it wasn't too late for me to channel my passion for computers into a career.
I started studying in every free moment I had. Now, almost two years later, I'm looking for a full-time role where I can help a company achieve their goals doing what I love!
