I spoke with John Calderaio. John is as a technical writer currently working with Mosh Hamedani from Programming with Mosh.
If you haven't heard about Mosh, he is a great content and course creator. John writes for Mosh's website.
But John's story goes way beyond coding. As we discussed about his career, he revealed his troubled time from 12 to 20 years old when he dealt with drugs and alcohol, which lead to a car accident that got him in jail for 1 year. According to him, this was the worst time of his life.
Thankfully he got himself clean and he shared with me that after jail, he went back to University, got his bad grades removed and finished with a 3.9 GPA in Computer Science Engineering.
Unfortunately as a result of the car accident, he started suffering severe backpain which is still a constant in his life 24/7. Just to give you an idea of how bad the pain is, he was talking to me from his bed during the chat.
Nowadays, John is looking forward to a surgery that should fix the problems on his back. If all goes well, has plans to go to med school and combine technology with medicine.
I will leave you with the positive John Calderaio - technical writer and developer.
Enjoy the chat!
