The Great EpiPHPany

By Eric Ranner

Okay, so here is the “skinny”. I am a 35-year-old Junior Developer. My road to the programming world is unorthodox, to say the least. Unlike many in the industry, I had no idea that I had it in me to be a programmer until I turned 33 years old. You see, I had an entire career before hitting the “reboot” button on my work life. Although it may seem trivial to give you my “work-life story”, I think it’s important for context. by Eric Ranner
