Like most IT professionals, I’m self-taught. My experience is limited – barely even a novice – but I’ve greatly enjoyed the work I’ve done so far. Specifically, I enjoy being able to make my life easier – by improving productivity or creating something which has never existed before – by using a computer to do my biding.
Most of my programming experience has been in VBA. In my job as a Night Auditor, there is a lot of paperwork and data to go through each night. The question I always asked: “Why not let the computer do the work?”
So, I went about creating software to answer such a question. The results? Reducing workload by 60% and by several hours. Financially, consider it as re-investing from admin to customer service by thousands of dollars.
Not bad for being self-taught!
