Can you be an old fart and a geek? Sure you can!

61 and been in IT since ‘83, in a field I never wanted to go into. Go figure, right?

Went from being a phone support guy to a programmer to a systems admin, all on the Unix side (and most flavors there of). Then into capacity planning.

Now I’m a cloud guy working for a large telco (can you hear me now?) Cloud architect on the Oracle cloud. I write policies that determines who can access what resources within the cloud and how resources are laid out within the cloud.

It’s been fun to jump into a new field of the ever changing IT world

That's quite the journey. Currently in the process of getting into IT myself. Been a tech nerd all my life.

Being a relatively new member here, and reading a lot of interesting and well written posts, I wonder what does everyone do for a living?  How many golf professionals are here, who is in the corporate world, who is retired?  Just curious and figured for some this could also be a good tool for other, this can be an area to get other advice or networking opportunities.  I love the atmosphere here at MyGolfSpy, I don't get the feeling of being inferior or looked down upon by people in the golf industry.  Thank you all for that!  I hope others feel the same!  

I am a middle school science teacher.  Yeah, I work with 12-14 year old kids that most people just scratch their heads at.  I can tell you that everyday is an adventure.  I coach football and baseball (the golf job is a hard one to get), and I also work in the summer at one of the areas golf courses and coach a childrens league there.

I commend you for being a teacher. I was such a piece of sh*t when I was that age I can't imagine putting up with kids like me! I was that typical case where they made excuses like I "wasn't being challenged enough" but in reality I was just a little a hole. Welcome to MGS glad you're enjoying the waters round here!

You've got more patience than I do.  I get them when they leave middle school and get to try to teach them Algebra, or I get them after they already failed Algebra and have to take it over again.  Down here, football is year-round so that is my only coaching job.

Hi Master Chief 🙂

I'm active duty prior enlisted Navy officer. I did my first 10.5 years enlisted and earned my commission via Officer Candidate School aka 'summer camp' in 2010. I've dabbled in networking and communications my entire career and I'm planning on retiring in 2023 so I'm excited for the proverbial next chapter!

Thank you for your service!   I had considered going officer during my career, but my particular field would have limited my future career moves had I done so, including no further duty in submarines.  In retrospect, my retirement pay would have been better but I never really regretted my decision.  Good luck with the rest of your time in service and again, thank you!

Hi everyone!  I was in IT for a handful of years. Started with tapes, then mainframe production support, then Problem Manager (central support ctr type stuff) for Prudential.  I gave that up, went back to school and now I'm a mechanical engineer for the Army.  🙂

As a side hussle with a couple friends, I design and build snowboards 🙂

I'm 38. I work in the Casino industry as the General Manager of a property in Northern New Mexico. I play about 20 rounds per year (sometimes more) and have gotten my handicap to about 5. Casino Gaming has been a fun gig for the last 17 years.

United States Air Force, 14.5 years. I am a UNIX system administrator/Network Administrator. I do a little programming here and there when i want to automate a task that i do often. Basically, i support high end technical computing applications and do a lot of "making peoples lives easier" type of tasks. I also do some/dabble with network security/forensics on the side. I guess i am a geek all the way.

 

I have been depolyed twice and would not trade the experience for anything.

 

I really like this board so far, hopefully we can keep it growing with good people.

Thank you for your service! #aimhigh
