I am a mom, a people-person, an outdoors and exercise enthusiast, and a techie. I’ve worked for the past 10 years in software development – starting out as a QA engineer, then a .NET developer, then a business analyst. Having roles in almost all of the SDLC sure has taught me a lot about how software is made…and my only conclusion is, it’s not as easy as it should be! It’s certainly a career that requires a lot of brain power, no such thing as mindless work.

I’m teaching myself Swift/iOS development for a few reasons:

  • I am finally getting some decent sleep after 2 years of sleepless nights when my daughter was born, and my brain is ready to learn again
  • I have an app idea that I want to code
  • I want to freelance my skills so that I can have a flexible schedule for my life on the road

I hope you’ll follow along as I do this with a toddler alongside me (most days) and beautiful scenery out my RV window (most days). Being self-taught requires a lot of discipline, so I’m hoping that writing here makes me accountable.
