Beginning of the End

25 August, 2014

As I start back my last year I look at how I started at Boise State four years ago. In a new state and at a new school where I had no connections. Over the past four years I have learned so much it blows my mind.

From humble beginnings in my first programming class learning Java:

/** Hello my name is Andrew Gable and this is my first attempt at 
 *  a Java program. It is called Quote, and it will display one 
 *  of my favorite quotes. 

/** this is the public class */
public class Quote {

     * This is what will print out my favorite quote
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        System.out.println("From the Movie and Book \"Into the Wild\" ");
        System.out.println("If you want something in life, reach out and grab it.");
        System.out.println("\t-Christopher McCandless");


Fast forwarding to my last year taking Operating Systems, Parallel Processing, and a Cloud Computing course it is amazing how much I have progressed as a student and programmer. I am truly looking forward to continue my development with school, internship, and side projects that seem to always come my way.

I'd like to thank my family, friends, classmates, and teachers for helping me get to this great point in my academic career because without them I wouldn't be where I am. I've had Teaching Assistants help me study for tests on the weekends and professors respond to my programming questions during Spring Break. Boise State has created a great network of support that has helped me immensely.

I cannot wait to see what the future holds in store for software engineering as a whole and my future as a developer. I'm excited to keep continuing to learn as a developer and progress my career as a professional.
