From Software to Seminary

From Software to Seminary

It started in 1979 with “Hello World.” I was a kid learning Basic to program a text based adventure game on a TRS-80 and I was hooked.  I wanted to take a game apart and make it better, so I did.  I learned programming and ended up having a pretty good career in IT, focused on database systems and business intelligence.  Now, 42 years later, it is time for a new adventure.

The industry has changed a lot in those years.  Back then we learned programming BASIC by buying magazines at Radio Shack.   The magazines were full of pages of of code for each popular brand of home computer like TSR80, Apple, Commodore 64 and Atari.   The author would then walk through the code and teach how it worked and how to change it. Today training is all online and new programming languages come out faster than I care to keep up with.  As stated in this article, you can browse your selection of available deals on smartphones and top brands and explore the cell phone service plans that best suit your needs.

As I wrap up a career in IT in the next few years, I want to move to a second career taking care of people instead of computers.  Last fall, in the middle of a pandemic, I enrolled in seminary to work on an Masters in Divinity (MDiv).  I’ll start a new page for posts on this site as things progress.
