iOS Development

Hello World!

My first post.

👋 My name is Mikaela Caron. I’ve been wanting to start a blog for a while, but never got around to it. I decided to stop saying I’m going to, and actually start doing. (Thanks GaryVee).

In this blog, I’ll be sharing whatever I want! Mainly it’ll be related to iOS Development, but there may be an article here and there about other topics that I’m interested in, such as finance, or career tips. The possibilities are endless ðŸĪŠ

About Me

I graduated from Purdue University in May 2018. I studied Mechatronics and Robotics Engineering Technology, with minors in Computer Information Technology and Electrical Engineering Technology. I currently work in the manufacturing industry, with the automation system. Lately though, I’ve been very interested in shifting my career towards software development. I thought apps were cool, so I decided to pursue iOS development.

I’ve been learning iOS development for the past year and a half, on the side from my full time job. Everything I’ve learned about iOS has been self-taught. It really is possible! It’s all about your mindset.

I share my experience on Instagram ðŸĶ„ and Twitter.
