– has an associates degree in Mass Communications. After studying Journalism he was faced with the reality of how to support a family as he learned he was to become a dad. That led him to evaluate his options and that led to the beginning of his journey to get into tech.
In his journey of learning to be a frontend developer he found himself in a scenario where he had to choose which frontend framework to use. That choice led to using Vuejs the fastest growing frontend framework today. Earlier this year I had the privilege of hearing Charles give his first speech at a tech conference about how they chose Vue. Charles is also active in the community where he is the organizer for frontend Miami which is a meetup group for web developers and front-end engineers. Today Charles will talk about his journey from self taught to frontend developer as well as speaking.
