I'm currently a Senior Test Engineer in Chicago. I love digging into problems and root cause analysis. I'd say that 30% percent of my programming skills came from Udacity, an online coding degree program. The rest are from a random assortment of MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses), textbooks, podcasts, blogposts, stack overflow articles, meetup.com events, code documentation, and small projects. Self-directed learning is my thing. When I'm not learning, I'm taking photography classes, improv classes, or cooking something yummy.
