High School Computer Competition Testimonial

Jonathan Johnson

My name is Jonathan Johnson.  I am an alumni member that represented BDPA Dallas chapter in the 2001 High School Computer Competition (HSCC).  In 2001, I joined BDPA and attended the Dallas Chapter SITES program.  These classes give me several useful technical skills including HTML, JavaScript, ASP, and SQL.  More important than these skills; however, was the exposure to the IT Profession environment. 

The experience of planning projects, solving problems, and giving presentations will follow me for the rest of my life and assist me in any career I may choose to enter in the future.  Being able to network with professions in the IT field, learning about their experiences and the problems they face everyday is invaluable.  My affiliation with BDPA has led to several internships and has given me confidence in myself necessary to face the world of IT.
