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:

  • TypeScript/JavaScript
  • Groovy
  • PHP
  • Python 3

🐋 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 and Docker on AWS; package/version management with Helm and automation/CI tools such as Jenkins.

🎓 University modules

These are the modules I'm taking during my final year at university:

  • Cloud computing
  • Software testing
  • Secure software development
  • Contemporary team-based computing projects

On top of these modules, I'm also completing a final year project.
