This week (Dec 4th – 10th) is Computer Science Education Week, a week long celebration of computing and computer science education. In honor of this event, I am doing a series about computer science. Today’s topic involves my personal success story and explains how I ended up in this field.

I am not a teacher, so what can I do to improve recognition for computer science? I can share the love. You see, I am a programmer and I love what I do.
