So excited to have completed the Project Management Institute Certified Associate Project Manager online course and certification exam. It was a great experience and I highly recommend it to anyone who, like me, is building their career in web development and project management.
In case you haven't noticed we have been in the midst of a global pandemic since early 2020 and there is a nasty coronavirus on the loose called COVID-19.

First Technical Talk
Public speaking, especially a technical talk in front of peers and pros, is rough but it's a rite of passage every professional must experience.
I have loved learning to become a truly Full Stack Developer. While doing something different every day or week definitely fights away boredom and constantly offers up new challenges, I would love the opportunity to develop an expertise that I am known for.
