Congrats!

I accidentally started my web dev business after volunteer work to do a church website! (just static pages, html + images only). A CEO of a big organization saw my work, sent his VP to fly and meet with me and wife… well, and the rest is history. 19+ years and they’re still my clients today.

Lots of good things can happen with volunteering!

Haha, I remember that feeling!

From one teacher-turned-programmer to another: enjoy the new career and the lack of grading, parent phone calls, and parent-teacher interviews!

There seem to be so many teacher-turned-programmers around here! I think that is even @QuincyLarson’s background!

It’s good to have you with us.

Yes - it’s all about putting yourself out there. This is a high number of applications, but not unusual. It is to some extent a number’s game.
