About the Author
My “Career” in IT started at the age of 14 when my mother enrolled me in computer classes - “College for Kids” at a community college in Pittsburgh PA. Even though she had to borrow the tuition of $25 for the classes, Her unquestionably logical argument was : 1) “If you keep up what you have been doing, your going to end up in jail.” - 2) “I DON'T visit people in jail.” After my first 3 classes, I was hooked. I was a converted geek Thanks mom ! My Career as an IT guy spans the last 29 years.
