Luck or Skill? A CIO’s Path From the Air Force to Silicon Valley

Bryan Caporlette’s story to IT is a good one!

He taught himself basic programming as a kid, so he and his friend could reprogram their TRS-80 game.

Later on, after watching a 60-Minutes interview with his dad of Bill Gates, Steve Jobs and more tech millionaires, Bryan knew he wanted to become an IT guru himself.

Bryan Caporlette made his way through the Air Force to Silicon Valley, and today is the CTO at G&G Outfitters.

How did he do this?

Was it hard work?      Luck?      Skill?      Right place at the right time?      Or, a combination of them all?
