“Every great developer you know got there by solving problems they were unqualified to solve until they actually did it.”
I consider myself a very hard-working Junior Developer with many years of experience working on various websites and applications. I lack typical software company job experience, but I work each day to try and improve my skills through practice and online lessons.

Fulltime - Senior System Administrator / DevOps Programmer / IT Support
Even though the position is for a Senior System Administrator, this is my entry into System Administration.

The role consists of managing all of our many servers, protocols, hardware/software, updates, more-or-less everything.
And also still responsible for working as a full-stack developer as well on past and possibly future projects for the company.

Parttime & Fulltime - Full-Stack Junior Programmer / IT Support
For nearly ten years I have worked for Florida Solar Energy Center as a programmer that has evolved into a Full Stack role over time, and is shifting more recently into a DevOps role.
I've worked on a wide range of projects consisting of websites, database driven applications, data collecting and parsing, Fortran & C cross-compiling for OpenVMS, as well as some machine learning work (albeit nothing fancy, just AWS ML API use).
From time to time I also help with some basic IT Support, Server Upgrades and Maintenance, as well as provide bug fixes for our other departments.
