Hello! I’m Joshua Webster

About me...

My name is Joshua Webster. I have been working in the computer science fields on and off since I was in high school. I had my first internship at NASA when I was 16, working in the propulsion lab on a project dealing with the oxygen thrusters on the nose cone of the space shuttle. After this, I joined the U.S. Army and proudly served for 8 years until I received my medical discharge due to injuries sustained overseas. I used this opportunity to go back to school and receive my degree in Computer Science/Math. I love every facet of technology both in work and out and am constantly learning as much as I possibly can to further myself and satiate my need for self-improvement. In any CS industry learning never ends; there is always something new to learn.
