I'm a Software Engineering student at Queen's University Belfast currently on Industrial Placement with Deloitte Digital UK.
This site outlines some of my experiences as well as some projects I have created and worked on in the past couple of years.
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).
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 - Present : Deloitte Digital, Belfast/London
I have worked in industry mostly with these programming languages:
- Python 3
Some other languages I use frequently as part of my studies or in my spare time or side projects:
- ... ?
As part of my time in Deloitte Digital, I have been upskilling in an operations role (you may know it as 'DevOps').
During this time, my focus has been less on software development (although I do get to develop tooling from time to time), and more focused on: container-based deployments and orchestration using Kubernetes; package/version management with Helm and automation/CI tools such as Jenkins.
Tools and services come and go, but these are some of my favourites at the moment that I have been doing a lot of work with:
- Visual Studio Code
- Z-Shell + the oh-my-zsh plugin
- GitLab CI
- Docker Swarm
- Font Awesome
