Featured Developer Student for April 2018

Featured Developer Student for April 2018

April 5, 2018 in Featured Students / by Centriq Training

Robert Swindler

My professional background is in sales, and I left that field to try for more fulfilling and challenging options. The logical transition was web development as it allows for endless personal growth and countless problems to overcome. I’ve learned to live by the motto, “I might not know everything, but I can learn anything.” It has been a great maxim through this track.

Q&A

Q: Why did you decide to come to Centriq?
A: I have a friend who has been through the track, and he convinced me that I would be able to keep my creativity thriving while going through the program. Turns out that he was 100% correct, and coding is not just regurgitating what others have done. Instead you create new things all of the time, even if what you’re making isn’t grand or all important to a project.

Q: What class has been your favorite so far?
A: It might not be popular, but CSS is my favorite. It is the most frustrating as well. Creating content in a functional manner is still paramount, but presentation determines if people care.

Q: What do you hope to do after Centriq?
A: Continue learning everything I can about the world of web development. At this point I would love to get into an environment where trying new things is encouraged.

Q: What other hobbies and interests do you have?
A: My hobbies are centered around creating things. The main one is a passion for metalsmithing, but woodworking is a close second. Collecting tools might be a better explanation though.
