Hi there – my name is Aos. I graduated medical school in January 2017. And while I enjoyed those 4 years, and developed a strong love for medicine, I ultimately decided not to practice it. There were many reasons why, but in the interest of brevity, I would rather not talk about them here (perhaps the topic of a future post).
After graduating, I picked up programming again and poured all my time back into it and had the realization that this was what I wanted to do after all. I dabbled with code in my formative years, but never had the time to take it seriously. I attended the Recurse Center in Summer 2017 and that was perhaps one of the most influential career decisions I’ve made. In the future, I would like to marry my domain knowledge of medicine with software engineering to make advancements in medical technology.
When I’m not programming, I can be found playing soccer, drinking coffee, or meditating.
