Panel: Charles Max Wood

Guest: Sean Merron

This week on My JavaScript Story, Charles speaks with Sean Merron. Sean is currently in Austin, Texas and is originally from Virginia Beach, Virginia. He is a full-time software engineer, and has been for a little over 15 years now, and runs a podcast called 2 Frugal Dudes. He first got into programming when he was in high school and went to a trade school for computer networking. This trade school really gave him a leg up with his certifications and led him to his first job where he did tech support for an office. Sean urges new programmers to always have a project and to never be afraid to learn something new.

In particular, we dive pretty deep on:

  • 2 Frugal Dudes
  • How did you get into programming?
  • CCNA and A+ certification
  • Frist experience learning programming
  • AP Computer Science
  • C++ and Java
  • How did you get into JavaScript?
  • Gaming led to him wanting to build websites
  • GeoCities
  • HTML files
  • HTML application
  • Any advice for new programmers?
  • Scripting
  • Life-long learning
  • What have your contributed to the programming community?
  • Teaching, meetups, and conferences
  • How did 2 Frugal Dudes come about?
  • The importance of learning about finances
  • The goal of podcasts
  • His podcast audience demographics
  • They discuss finances in layman’s terms
  • What are you working on now and what are your future plans?
  • And much, much more!

Panel: Charles Max Wood

Guest: Sean Merron

This week on My JavaScript Story, Charles speaks with Sean Merron. Sean is currently in Austin, Texas and is originally from Virginia Beach, Virginia. He is a full-time software engineer, and has been for a little over 15 years now, and runs a podcast called 2 Frugal Dudes. He first got into programming when he was in high school and went to a trade school for computer networking. This trade school really gave him a leg up with his certifications and led him to his first job where he did tech support for an office. Sean urges new programmers to always have a project and to never be afraid to learn something new.

In particular, we dive pretty deep on:

  • 2 Frugal Dudes
  • How did you get into programming?
  • CCNA and A+ certification
  • Frist experience learning programming
  • AP Computer Science
  • C++ and Java
  • How did you get into JavaScript?
  • Gaming led to him wanting to build websites
  • GeoCities
  • HTML files
  • HTML application
  • Any advice for new programmers?
  • Scripting
  • Life-long learning
  • What have your contributed to the programming community?
  • Teaching, meetups, and conferences
  • How did 2 Frugal Dudes come about?
  • The importance of learning about finances
  • The goal of podcasts
  • His podcast audience demographics
  • They discuss finances in layman’s terms
  • What are you working on now and what are your future plans?
  • And much, much more!
