Hello everyone! So nice to be connected to a budding new community of like-minded individuals in the tech and engineering industry! My name is Harry and I graduated from University of California, San Diego with a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science in 2014. My college technical experience centered heavily around Software Development, and then I transitioned into Front-end Development as my first real job after college. Held it for almost a year and then I transitioned heavily into Web Development for 6 years doing freelancing, agency-work, consulting, and training. Although I've been involved with the Computer Science culture for about 12 years, I still have so much to learn, to experience, and to experiment with. I absolutely love to build interactive experiences and beautifully crafted designs, which is why I've built Front-end for so long. During my time in doing freelancing, I ended up becoming a yoga instructor. I am so blessed to have worked in an agency where they supported my dreams and aspirations. They ended up being my first yoga students. I was unable to land a full time technical role so I decided to teach yoga while I was building websites. So half my time was teaching yoga and my other half was doing agency work. In the last two years, I ended up teaching yoga 75-90% of my time. During my process of soul-searching in the last year, I decided that I wanted to code for my career, and teach yoga as my hobby. Although, I did not land that Google or Apple job fresh out of college, I knew that I was just so intrigued and inspired to develop myself alongside Computer Science. I am a creative artist, so problem solving through technology doesn't come naturally to me. That did not stop me from chasing those difficult, fun, and challenging projects. For 2022, I accepted a full time contract for a in-house agency where I get to develop my ReactJS skill-set, Computer Science habits, and DevOps. I am extremely grateful and humbled to accept the offer; I am genuinely excited for my return back to tech. Can't wait to connect and get to know y'all. Maybe we'll create something together that'll bring a lot of good vibrations to the world. Much love, Harry
