Hey, I'm Zach. In college I majored in Philosophy and had not written a single line of code in my life. At my first job as a Quality Assurance Analyst, I decided to 'dig under the hood' and learn programming -- and soon I became hooked. Then I pivoted to Test Engineer, and haven't looked back since. Now I work at ReviewTrackers in Chicago as their Lead Test Engineer.
I love digging into problems. My programming education comes from a random assortment of MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses), textbooks, podcasts, blogposts, stack overflow articles, meetup.com events, and small projects. When I'm not learning, I'm taking photography classes, improv classes, or cooking something yummy.
