School Update

I haven't blogged for a long time on the WGU school thing (in fact I haven't blogged much at all recently due to much busyness) but it has been coming right along. I am down to my final six classes and it appears I will be done this fall. It has been quite the ride. I have covered a ton of material in the last year and a half.

Two of the six classes remaining involves the final capstone project. My intention is to design & complete a small iPhone app to fulfill the capstone requirement. I am looking forward to getting into the world of mobile applications... it's been a long time coming.

Overall, WGU has been a good experience. I have gained a bunch of IT certifications one of which was the Sun Certified Java Programmer (SCJP). I had been wanting to achieve that one for a long time prior to even starting school. I have expanded my world quite a bit with general education studies. At times it was easy to fight their relevance, but I think they have a valid purpose... at least most of them anyway.

I am looking forward to completing the degree this fall. After that, I intend to utilize the degree as a foundation for my further pursuits in the field of software engineering. It's hard telling where the journey will lead.
