About Me

Blog Jun 01, 2019

I'm a Software Engineering student at Queen's University Belfast and have recently completed a placement year with Deloitte Digital UK.

This site outlines some of my professional experience as well as some projects I have created and worked on in the past couple of years.


About me

Education

I am currently attending university, studying towards a BEng degree in Software Engineering.

I attended Banbridge Academy for seven years between 2009 and 2016 and gained three A-Levels in Maths, Physics and Technology & Design (Electronics modules).

Professional Experience

During my time at university, I have had the opportunity to gain professional experience in industry, both as part of my degree pathway, and over the summer holidays.

  • May 2018 - Sept. 2018 : GCD Technologies, Lurgan
  • Sept. 2018 - Sept. 2019 : Deloitte Digital, Belfast/London

Languages

I have worked in industry mostly with these programming languages:

  • Groovy
  • JavaScript
  • PHP
  • Python 3
  • YAML

Some other languages I use frequently as part of my studies or in my spare time or side projects:

  • Golang Template
  • Java

Technologies

During my time at Deloitte Digital, I was upskilled in an operations/infrastructure role (you may know it as 'DevOps').

My focus was less on software development (although I got to develop tooling from time to time to aid the release process), and more focused on: container-based deployments and orchestration using Kubernetes; package/version management with Helm and automation/CI tools such as Jenkins.

Recent work

These are some of the tools/platforms/frameworks I have been using most in recent days.

  • Django REST
  • VueJS
  • WordPress
  • Leaflet
  • Docker Swarm
  • Font Awesome

Favourites:

Text Editor of choice: VS Code
OS: Debian
Git client of choice: Gitkraken
Browser: Firefox
