It was at BRCC in his intro to HTML class that he wrote his first “HELLO WORLD.” After that, he was hooked. Soon thereafter, Hunter got his associates degree in software development from ITT Tech.

He has obtained the the following certifications: CompTIA A+ 901, CompTIA A+ 902, COMPTIA Project +, CIW User Interface Designer, CIW Advanced HTML5 and CSS Specialist. He is now looking more to Microsoft Certifications with an emphasis in ML(Machine Learning).  AI technologies have always intrigued him and now with his bachelor’s degree out the way he wants to further his knowledge in this area.
