Graduated!

After 4 months of intensive training, I graduated from Centriq Training's TechSmart KC Program Application Developer track on Friday. This was culminated by presenting the TST and SAT projects to a room full of my fellow classmates, class instructors, Centriq support staff, and potential employers. I will now be studying independently to acquire a Microsoft Technology Associate (MTA): Web Development Fundamentals certificate, along with searching for a new employment opportunity.

Happy St Patrick's Day!

Here is an Irish blessing from Mark's Quotes. For more Irish history, see Irish History.
May the leprechauns be near you,
To spread luck along your way.

Smile upon you St. Patrick's Day.
