Starting TOP Today


Hello everyone! My name is Mason, as my very original username may indicate, and I am happy to report that I am starting my adventure with TOP today in hopes of a career change in the (hopefully) not so distant future. I have limited programming experience–mostly with html/css/js from taking some courses online. I don’t really have much back-end knowledge. I took a Visual Basics course in high school, and I have self-learned a little bit of C and C++.

I was going to sign up for a coding bootcamp, but figured TOP may be able to provide what I’m looking for, since it is being built by people who possess the exact set of skills that I someday hope to possess.

Anyway, that’s all for now. Hopefully I will be able to become a useful member of the community after a while, but for now, I have work to do!


Welcome Mason,

Great to have you here.


Welcome Mason,

I’m in the exact same position as you!

Just stick with it, you’ll change to a rewarding career in no time.
