    I've studied computer science. I have an experience of Web Development with the flavor of HTML, CSS, Bootstrap, JavaScript and other web development tools. I really enjoy the fact that thousands of users use applications that are developed by me. The ultimate dream is that one day thousands will grow into millions or billions. I HAVE A DREAM! Overall if summarized my experience that would be exploring, organizing information, problem-solving, and implementation. Languages are essential for expressing your programming skills overall. From the EXPLORING attribute, I have worked around lots of different languages. 1) Ruby 2) AngularJS 3) Javascript 4) Vuejs 5) Python ( a new sensation I always wanted to explore Erlang but then I found this beauty. Python leverages the Erlang VM, known for running low-latency, distributed and fault-tolerant systems, while also being successfully used in web development and the embedded software domain.) In assistance to above languages below frameworks come into play, 1) Ruby on Rails 2) Django Databases are the main central storage of any web application. I got experience in both SQL and NoSQL 1) Postgres 2) MongoDB 3) SQLite 4) Mysql The game never ended on the server-side for me. The frontend/public-facing part of the web application has been also highly evolved. Everyone wants to use Single Page Applications - The SPAs. I got experience in the following 1) Angular JS 2) React JS Testing and Test Driven Development(TDD) is also an essential thing for any solid application. I can write automated tests in following 1) Rspec 2) Capybara Deployment is essential to distribute your application out in the wild. I got experience in the following tools and technologies 1) AWS 2) Google Cloud Platforms 3) Capistrano 4) Mina 5) Nginx 6) Passenger Phusion 7) Puma 7) Unicorn

    The jobs and experiences I have had over the years have led me down many different avenues of work and responsibility. My mindset has always been to step outside my comfort zone and tackle new challenges, learning as much as I can along the way. I have been faced with various mechanical challenges that needed to be solved by a team of people, so I know first hand how to work as a team player over such problems. I have worked to be skilled at both machining and fabrication, using such machines as mills, lathes, bandsaws, chop saws, and more. Due to my machining experience, I know what is needed for a blueprint to be understandable and clear. My experience in CAD spans over 10 years among multiple platforms such as NX 9, Creo, Solidworks, Fusion 360, and I am professionally certified in Autodesk Inventor. The coupling of design and manufacturing experience has been an invaluable asset for me to use when designing. I own both filament and resin printers, so once the early design stages are over I can immediately begin printing the solid prototype. The all-encompassing world of engineering has always fascinated and inspired me throughout my life. My passion for this field drives me to produce work that I can be proud of.
