About the Editor

Elmar Mammadov, Founder & Managing Editor

Hi there! I’m Elmar Mammadov, a career changer and tech career specialist.

Although I was always interested in coding, the first degree I got in college was actually that of a Medical Doctor.

After a few years of practicing medicine, I realized I wanted to explore a career in research and went on to get a job as a neuroscience research scientist, where I performed experiments related to brain psychopharmacology.

Then, a few years later, I made another switch, this time to computer science, and realized I had finally found my true calling. I got into a Master’s program for career changers at an Ivy League school and have since been happy with my new tech career.

As you can see, I have extensive experience in switching careers, as well as building a career in computer science and software engineering.

As a result, I decided to establish CS Careerline to share my valuable experience with others who are interested in starting out in tech and particularly career changers who have previously pursued a career in another field and decided to switch to computer science subsequently.

It is my goal to help everyone who is starting out in tech to feel equipped, confident, and excited about their decision.
