I started my career learning the full development cycle by maintaining and supporting Microsoft SQL databases and applications. Moving on to become a .NET developer while practicing test-driven development, I rewrote back-end processing for aggregated journal, package, and book usage statistics, taking the system from a 6% pass rate to a 98% pass rate in staging. I loved exploring the world of tech, soaking up as much as I could like big data, mobile development, and trying other languages.
I enjoy constantly learning new technologies and software practices to gain further knowledge in web and systems development like Node, React, Elixir, and Phoenix, finding the cutting edge to be not only mandatory in our tech-savvy world, but exhilarating. There's always a new hurdle to conquer, something more add to my library of knowledge, and I love it.
