After a stint in film and television production and twelve years in the hospitality industry, Ron Howie of Web Development Cohort 45 decided to take his lifelong interest in technology and make the leap into software development.
“With a focus on others, teamwork, hospitality, and an eagerness to learn, I hope to do some good in the world with the power of programming.”
What was your favorite capstone project and why?
“Move it-Move it was my favorite to work on. It came down to the wire and was definitely stressful to code a full stack application in 10 days. The reward was seeing all of those moving parts come together between the back-end and front-end.”
What advice would you give to current or incoming NSS Web Development students?
“Step one is to believe in yourself. You set out to do something that your instructors will tell you is hard. They aren’t lying to you. It is hard, but you will have the help you need along the way. When deciding on capstone projects, make sure you pick something you feel at least an ounce of passion about, you will need the motivation. Use your resources, but don’t be afraid to ask for help from your peers and instructors. Everyone wants to see you succeed.“
