Hello, my name is Benjamin Haedt. I am 35 years old and have approximately 6 years of experience in IT and software development. I developed my first program at the age of 16, driven by my interest in hacking video games. At 18, I joined the Montana Army National Guard and served as an Information Technology Specialist (25B10). Following that, I worked at IBM, Entre Technology Services, Visionary Communications, and independently as an IT Specialist. However, I eventually embarked on a different path and spent time working alongside my father, specializing in finish carpentry. At the age of 29, I made the decision to pursue my Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science and have two credits left to graduate from MSU Bozeman.
