Software Engineering Study
Sequelize • Python • Golang • WordPress/Ghost • Google Cloud Platform • Firebase
Ever since I was younger I have had an affinity for software and engineering, and through my adult life, I have always gravitated towards my home PC where I quickly learned entry-level web and native software development skills. I started designing simple landing pages and websites for friends with other ambitions. You can find a few examples of those here. Then, after getting acquainted with front-end technologies, I began expanding my skill set, growing in confidence, and I began considering my tinkering as a form of study. Each time I worked to build new tools and sites, I got faster, learned how to use more advanced technologies, and found more modern tools, giving me an upper hand, and expanding my knowledge of the web developer ecosystem.
I do not have a code camp or trade school paper to prove my skills, but I have learned a lot on my own and I am still learning every day. I would like to get more experience working with a professional team, as the team engineering workflow is a huge ecosystem outside of building apps and projects on your own. I am confident in admitting here that this will be something I struggle with at first, but I am excited to learn and grow in this direction.
