View the Bot Lair on the WayBack Machine.
The site was basically a dedicated news, review, and hub for all things bot related. It was also my first taste of web development. I started with WYSIWYG editors and then quickly moved on to hand coded html. Things weren’t not as complex and robust back then as they were now, but the seed was planted and I knew I had found something that I loved. My teens went on and unfortunately I couldn’t see the big picture, and I never considered web development as a viable career path for myself. I enlisted into the Air Force and lost touch with the online gaming community and was thrust head first into an entirely new world and on a different career path.
Here I am (middle) fresh out of a REAL boot camp in 2002.
Of course, these days I’m out of the service. I’m currently bartending to pay the bills and I’m studying web development as much as possible. I’ve discovered the self-taught engineering movement and I’ve dove right in. I started with Bloc coding bootcamp and it continues on with udemy courses, online tutorials, meetups, and even Twitter. Visit my GitHub to see what I am working on, check out my blog or twitter! Thanks for reading!
