Hello class. I wish everyone a happy summer and safety as the city begins to reopen since the pandemic. My name is Quincy Luckett. You can call me Quincy. I am a Btech student majoring in Networking and Security. Taking this class was a last-minute decision but doing so will accelerate my expected graduation date. This is my first time enrolling in a summer class. I worry if it will be too much after having just completed rough semester. After this summer session, I will have only two more semesters before graduating- that is my motivation! I am excited to finish this degree and break into the Information Technology field. I work for the New York City Police Department doing clerical work. I would like to get a position in the IT department where I work. I enjoy gaming. I favor RPG and fighting games. After graduating, I also plan on honing my programming skills. The IT field is vast, and I find myself curious in other paths within it. While I enjoy my major, I would like to improve my programming skills and learn of the technology used in video game development. I am from, Spanish Harlem, however I have lived in Brooklyn most of my life. I this image is my avatar from the bitmoji app. I think it’s cool and looks the way I imagine I would in a cartoon.
About the class
Technical writing, professional writing… what’s the difference? How can we understand what to do in any given professional writing situation? This class will focus on Technical Writing, but there’s obviously overlap, and things to keep in mind.
I’m Jacquelyn Blain (also known as Donna according to CUNY although I never use it). You can reach me most easily via our Slack workspace. My email is DBlain@citytech.cuny.edu.
This class is fast and busy and will keep you working… a lot. It can also be rewarding and interesting if you jump in and do your best.
