I started in IT in 2012 following spending about 9 years avoiding going into the industry after graduating with a Bsc in I.T. I was, and still am sometimes, a TESOL teacher (English as a second language).
Although I avoided it for so long, I am actually really enjoying working in IT.
My first job was with a wonderful start-up company called Kudos Knowledge in Maleny QLD, Australia, and we built an awesome sports portal site, www.starspoon.com. We used Nodejs and Mongo, Dojo and Java.
I am now working on a website for a non-profit organisation which processes applications for meditation courses. I am using Ruby on Rails.
