I am currently enrolled in the FinTech Boot Camp via the U of MN, which covers a variety of technologies built on to financial fundamentals including: Python-based programming, Machine Learning and Blockchain.. Happily Learning, and happily discovering related areas like Stack Exchange and the English Language and Usage community.
Recently I started a new position at a private college in the Twin Cities - excited to stretch a bit professionally and engage in activities at the enterprise level.
Work history: 1987 - present - career in Accounting and related areas including Accounting Software integrations, updates, implementations (my favorite part of course), database work, EDI software, also areas like PR, Benefits admin, OS & Tech support. Mostly in NP sector.
Regarding English-Stack Exchange: I've also always had a strong interest in the written word. I've been in editorial positions (along with accounting work), and also for a time explored book indexing. Also am a puzzle enthusiast... mostly word games, not 'actual' crossword puzzles. I used to think my difficulty was that I didn't always know exactly what was being referred to, now I realize it's because there is not the accuracy level that I was expecting.
Resources I'm collecting to use on this site:
