Share the Knowledge

First let me welcome you to No Tribal Knowledge. This blog is dedicated to sharing my personal coding experiences, challenges, and triumphs. Along the way I hope to use this blog as both a learning and teaching tool. At times I will also dive into a bit of personal history, and how these experiences have shaped me as a Developer.

A little bit about myself. My name is Ace Olszowka, I am a Programmer/Build Master for a large software development company in Billings, Montana. I am a native of Hawaii, and the oldest of two children. I graduated from the Kamehameha Schools Kapalama Campus in 2006. From there I moved to Billings, Montana to attend school at Rocky Mountain College and graduated in 2009 with a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science with a Minor in Business Management.

My interest in computers started at a young age with my first computer being a Macintosh Classic II which I received back in the Summer of 1995. However this Apple Computer detour did not last long, because in Christmas 1996 I received my first ‘Real Computer’; A Sony VAIO PCV-90, a Pentium 133mhz with 32mb of RAM and 2gb hard drive running Windows 95, a monster of a machine at the time.

My interest was really more ‘Information Technology’ oriented in my youth. I received great pleasure in repairing and taking apart systems, and helping others. It wasn’t until my Senior year in high school that I began to take a real interest in the Software Development aspect of the Industry. This has continued to flourish in the past few years, and while I still enjoy using my IT skills on the side to help friends, family, and co-workers, Code is what will continue to put food on my table for the foreseeable future.

I hope that this blog will prove useful to any of those who stumble across it on the vast expanse of the Internet. I encourage you to comment and subscribe, and look forward to ongoing feedback and interaction.
