WHAT’S THERE TO KNOW ABOUT NICK BATES?
Hello everyone! My name is Nick Bates, but people sometimes call me Peter Parker. I finished Eleven Fifty Academy December 16th of 2016 and was accepted into an apprenticeship through the school. They encouraged us to find a programming job during the apprenticeship. I was fortunate enough to get an internship at Nextfly Web Design and started January 24th of 2017!
Before I started to code, I worked at Eddie Merlot’s for two and a half years. I was a server and occasionally worked behind the bar as well. I also worked for Indie Arts & Vintage Marketplace. I made sure things looked neat and presentable before the show begins. During the show I was a bartender or bouncer. I’m thankful to say that those days will be in my past now.
I’m a sports fanatic. You can find me at football, basketball, hockey, or baseball games. Whenever I’m not watching sports, I’m probably at a concert, hiking a mountain, camping, playing the guitar, or fishing. I try to remain busy because I despise idle time. I wake up everyday to learn and experience something new.
We’ll see if being a coder is a good fit for me. I’m new to the field and excited to see where I end up. My goal is to be like my Dad and start up my own company someday. I’m setting my goals high, and watch me exceed my expectations!
