Hello everyone!

My name is Nathan and I've been teaching English as a foreign language for 10 years and I'm interested in a career change into IT. I'm 31, from Ireland and I love skateboarding.

@NathanAllison1 Nice, welcome! Glad to see other teachers here (I used to be a high school CS teacher) :)

@timmy_i_chen Thanks for the reply Timmy. How long have you been studying for here?

@NathanAllison1 If you mean how I learned all this stuff, I learned on my own during my third year of teaching when I realized I might be looking for a career change. Lots of online videos, tutorials, and googling. Some paid, some free. The classic "throw everything and see if anything sticks" strategy.

@timmy_i_chen Haha nice. If you flick enough stuff some of it is bound to stick. So are you working in the industry now?
