My JS Story Justin Meyers
7th Grade and a TI82 [3:02]
Justin’s discovery of conditional statements and methods on a classic TI82 was his first taste of programming. With a little guidance, he soon learned to program games on the TI82 and then later moved onto bigger and better mediums like C and QBasic.
Grunt work is good for you. [4:51]
While studying Computer Science, Justin finds out that professors often have grunt work, and although they may not pay well now, sometimes they can in time lead to loads of experience and maybe even a bigger job. After 4 years of working on websites and writing documentation, he gets his first real job at Accenture.
Open Source and reducing waste. [6:23]
Accenture, while giving him a great chance to make some impressive projects, provoked Justin to see the efficiency in sharing code. Justin and a college friend get together to work on a project to build a platform that…builds. Although their project was unsuccessful, the tools they started to create for the project had plenty of potential.
