and I'm a problem solver/software engineer
Today's theme is Purple Pizzazz
One of my superpowers is the ability to find patterns where others might not see them, especially when it comes to digital mediums. I can see where automation can occur, especially given my experience with automating manual workflows. I have nightmares of seeing way too many Excel spreadsheets and the number 160819 (there's a story behind that one).
I have several mobile apps under my belt, with one on the Play and App store right now for the company I work for. The others are used internally for various processes!
I also work on server side routing, modeling, and maintaining the flow of data between client machines and our database. I work consistently with C# on a day to day basis in our .NET stack of data driven websites.
I manage all forms of data using SQL Server and SSMS (and Azure Data Studio gets an honorable mention) that are used to communicate data from a multitude of databases to various web servers that serve up data in several forms, which range from client facing interfaces to data-driven, self-written APIs.
A Software Engineer from West Virginia, USA
I am from a small town, really more like a village, in West Virginia called Flat Top. Growing up in Flat Top, where houses are widespread, there weren't any kids my age to go out and play with. This lead me to spend quite a bit of my time on the internet, where I developed a love and appreciation for coding.
When I was in middle school, I started programming various projects using a program called Game Maker from games to a clock in/out system for my class using Game Maker (yes, I was that kid). At that time, Game Maker was a perfect program for me as I could learn about coding while dragging and dropping "command blocks" as I needed to.
Now, I work as the lead software engineer for a great marketing company! I love what I do, and I do what I love. The ancient proverb, "Choose a job you love, and you'll never work a day in your life" absolutely holds true.
Let me show you what I do and tell you about some of my projects
