De Novo: Starting Fresh from Humanities to Tech

My background is in teaching people to read Classical Greek and Latin (hence the title).

There’s still a lot of work to be done in the digital humanities to make ancient texts available, and I’ve done some work in that area—but, I get really excited when I think about all of the new avenues for creative design that software engineering opens up. I’m particularly interested in designing applications that have real-world use. I also just really like learning new languages and talking about them with other people.

In short, I’m looking forward to moving into the 21st century and finding a new path (inveniens novam viam) in programming!

I’m very excited to start a new journey in programming. I already love Ruby—the language and infrastructure. I cannot wait to learn JS, React, and Redux.
