About Ruben

My name is Ruben. I retired from the Marines in 2017. My last rank was Gunnery Sergeant and my last billet was Personnel Chief out of Tanks Battalion San Diego Ca. After retirement I pursued my goal to be a software developer. I started being interested about coding after publishing some websites and I finally started once I left the Marines. I have moved a few times in the past three years so it's been hard to focus on my goal; however, the last six months I have been able to finally received focus training on Software development. I started attending ECPI university out of VA and recently I started a coding boot camp with General Assembly out Washington DC.
