From 2018, I took my time with Java and it begans to be the language where I really commit to becoming a developer. I enrolled in a Computing and IT degree at the Open University to broaden my knowledge and increase my employability prospects in the future. In 2019, I got serious I commited myself towards studying Java and taking it to a professional level. I developed my first application in March using the Swing framework, created my second using the Hibernate ORM in April, and then worked on learning Spring while trying to secure my first job as a Software Engineer.
In 2020 I began to start learning Kotlin to develop mobile applications for Android. I quit my 3 year job after saving for months to commit myself fully to becoming a software developer. I'm really enjoying Kotlin, and am working on coding challenges daily. I'm looking forward to a long, accomplished career in software engineering, and can't wait to get started in the industry.
I love to have many different hobbies and interests. I love to game, I love to read, and I love spending time in the workshop creating things such as the arcade machine I built myself earlier this year. I'm also an amatuer chef, cooking new things all the time, check it out on my Instagram! I'm still upset about the end of Game of Thrones. The picture above is my on top of the Rockefeller skyscraper in NYC, my dream is to travel to every state in the USA, just 47 left to go!
I am a personable, friendly presence in any team. Spending 3 years in retail taught me so much about customer service. I treat people with respect and politeness. My greatest strength is my ability to learn things quickly, and my strong logical thinking (INT-J) makes me a great asset to any company.
