Reaching the End of the Road

by on April 24, 2013

ImageThe past two years seem like a blur and I can’t believe graduation is only a few weeks away. I’m excited yet nervous at the same time and I feel like when I graduate I am going to be taking some valuable skills with me.

I’m so glad I decided to continue my education because I didn’t take ANY web design/coding classes as an undergraduate. I think one of the most important things I’ve learned as a graduate student is how important basic coding is to know, and how big of a role these skills will play in the future. I didn’t know how important these skills were as an undergraduate and I had no idea what coding even was. I feel more confident going into the “real world” now with these basic skills under my belt.

I want to work in the sports industry and from what I can tell from my internship is the jobs that require these kinds of skills usually go to guys. So, hopefully armed with my new coding knowledge I’ll be able to break that trend. Image

I think another important thing I’ve learned from these classes is how quickly things are changing and how important it is for us to keep up to stay in the game. SXSW Interactive would be a great place to start going every year to keep up with the latest trends, and of course Hack/Hackers meet ups. If I want to stay relevant and know what’s going on these events and other conferences need to be on my agenda.
