My name is Tyler and I am currently a second year student at LCC. I am pursuing an A.A.S. in Computer Network Operations. I am really passionate about computers and new technology so It is neat to be able to utilize technology in this class. Although I love computers, I also try to keep my life balanced by going outdoors. I love hiking, backpacking, mountain biking, and basically anything that gets me outside! Over the last 10 years I have worked for the Forest Service. During that time I’ve worked in most departments, everything from public information to firefighting. This experience has giving me a great appreciation for our National Forests and Wildernesses. If anyone has questions about hikes or places to recreate, feel free to ask me!
I think technical writing is extremely important and I have seen how important it is in the federal government. Within the government documentation is huge and most employees have to draft up at least some type of technical document. Many times, the biologists and technicians have to compile a technical document with scientific findings to present a project they want to implement. This is a very important process as it could be the difference between a project getting approved or rejected. This means that technical writing may be one of the most important factors in success in the government. I imagine this holds true in most places.
I am looking forward to getting to know everyone in the class and learning more about them. It may take me a bit to get the hang of this whole blogging thing but I think this is great practice, especially for a IT major! With the growth of Internet I can’t imagine too many business that don’t have at least some online presence, so it is important that we learn skills that will help us be employable.
Thanks for reading!
