Bachelor's Degree in Political Science from Indiana University
I took a computer math course, which covered Visual Basic, and that sparked my interest in programming. Around the same time, the internet was becoming mainstream and that led me to creating and designing web pages.
We are agile at Interactive Intelligence Inc., so we participate in daily meetings where our project team discusses the day before, our progress, as well as the tasks we plan on working on for that day and any obstacles we may have.
Computer programming is a fast growing industry, so the options are expanding all of the time. Before, a lot of the jobs were primarily software or web pages, but now there are a lot of hardware options, robotics, engineering and the fast growing mobile department.
