Blake McCracken :
I grew up in Birmingham. I spent my early professional life managing valet parking services. However, I wanted something better. That is when I heard about a coding bootcamp put on by an organization called Innovate Birmingham. The bootcamp, called IAmBham, was full-time, 40 hours a week. I would have to save up, work nights and weekends, or find some other way to make it through the 16 week program. I was up for the change and the challenge. Though it was difficult, I never regretted it, and I soon found I had a love and a talent for software development. Then, in May 2019, I was hired by KEYSYS, where I could continue to grow as a developer. Aside from making things with code, I enjoy powerlifting and playing soccer.
