Programmer was not my dream profession...


© 2020, Kaspars Baldiņš

Thinking about the future and my career path in elementary school, being a programmer was not my dream profession... in fact, I hadn't even thought that I could relate my life to it in any way. However, towards the end of 9th grade, I realized that it was time to make an important decision and choose where to go next and what to do. It was at that moment, quite unexpectedly, that I became interested in programming and developed a desire to learn and understand it, so I decided to join the Riga State Technical School and I certainly do not regret it. In summer practice I used the opportunity to cooperate with my school. The given task was really interesting, exciting and useful- to create a virtual tour for Riga State Technical School. Thanks to my interest and supportive practice teacher, I completed the task successfully and in the 4th year practice I continue to improve it. In the practice of this year, I am also learning something new, not previously learned- new programs and programming languages.I am glad that I chose this particular educational institution, because thanks to it, the desire to develop does not disappear even at home.
