"Success is not always about greatness. It's about consistency. Consistent hard work leads to success. Greatness will come." -Dwayne Johnson
Hello, my name is Derek Smith and during high schooI I spent 3 years in the lawn and landscaping industry. While I worked there, I acquired many useful skills such as hard work, eye for detail, and having excellent communication skills while working on a team. However, my true enjoyment and passion for as long as I can remember was for technology and every aspect of it. During my Senior year of high school, I was enrolled in the Summit Technology Academy, which is a career preparation school that I attended for Software Development. Summit Tech motivated me more to pursue a career in the IT industry, as I figured out that I loved coding. This led me to now attending Centriq IT Training to hopefully gain a wide variety of base knowledge for modern websites. With me gaining experience daily, I am determined to keep expanding my knowledge in the Software industry, and when you have any potential position openings, I would love to speak with you further about them.
It has been a long journey over the past year from me knowing nothing about programming, to where I am now. I am super eager to get more knowledge and more languages in my skillset. Here are the technologies that I have been working with for about a year now! I can't wait to keep furthering my education and get more skills under my belt!
Here is a gallery of some of the projects I have completed. The gallery consists of websites and console applications, and in the future apps that I have made that will be on the App Store and Google Play Market.
