About Me: Kelvin Tran

A doctor is practicing medicine. A lawyer is practicing law. Well, I’m practicing IT!

I’m Kelvin Tran. I’m a high school student and an IT specialist. My specializations are in network and systems administration but I am constantly looking to expand my IT skillset. I started this blog in order to detail my extensive experiences with the IT-related projects that I complete in order to learn how to implement certain technologies, both so that future me can use it and for anyone else trying to do the same thing who may find something useful in a particular post or who can suggest a better way I can do something. As a student, I must be and I am constantly open to suggestion on how something I can do can be made more efficient.

I LOVE Information Technology. It is absolutely my pride and joy to sit down and experiment with a certain new technology or platform or finding new ways to implement technologies I thought I already knew. I am super excited to share my experiences with the world and I hope that you’re just as excited to read them as I am to share them.
