When did you first know you would pursue a career in IT?

When I couldn't find a job for more than eight bucks an hour with my bachelor's of psychology and yet was offered $24k as an HTML jockey :-)

Back in ‘88 my dad went to a Lotus 123 course for 2 weeks. He told me what the SW was about, showed me a few things & I was amazed of it. Then, I dive into it, I learned much faster than the 2-week course and I decided back then to pursue an IT career focusing on SW DEV.

Well before I knew what IT was. I started programming on my Dad's TRS-80 Model II in 1980 and was completely hooked.

When I was pursuing my degree in Marine Biology, and realized I had 2 times as many Computer Science classes completed.  It was clear to me computers would be in everything so I was taking computer classes to be ready for computerization.... and then realized that CS in itself was a career.  The A average in Computer Science helped too.

In college.  I was studying Electrical Engineering and the coursework was dry and abstract.  The Computer Science courses showed me how I could simplify solve real world problems.  The switch was a no-brainer.
