That is exactly why I wrote this! I came from managing aircraft maintenance. Which by the way, is not a computer science or IT field. I knew I couldn’t be the only one with a ton of unfinished courses, tutorials, and the like. I tried blaming life and my inability to finish things. When I realized there was more to it, I knew it had to be more than just me.

What did you do prior to coding?
