My JS Story Kim Carter
On this week's episode of My JS Story, Charles Max Wood interviews Kim Carter. Kim is a software engineer, architect, web developer, entrepreneur, and the founder of BinaryMist Ltd. He recently appeared as a guest in episode 251, and talked about InfoSec for Web Developers. Also, he is currently writing a powerbook series and runs InfoSec conferences based in New Zealand. Stay tuned to know more about his journey in programming!
From Building to Programming
Kim spent ten years in the building trade. But, it became difficult for his body to meet the work's demand. So, he went back to school and looked for something else to work on.
He graduated in 2001 with a diploma in business. From there he worked first as a tester, and afterwards as a developer. He stayed only for 40 months as developer in the first software company he worked for.
Moving to Web and Infosec
Since Kim was not getting paid enough with his previous employment, he went back to building for a couple of years. He saved money from that to go back to programming.
