This upcoming summer I will be a Software Engineering Intern at Amazon Web Service (AWS)!
I learned a lot about blockchain technology, particularly Ethereum, through hands on development. We built a scalable, secure, filesharing dApp. I also gained plenty of hands on experience working with a team of developers, as well as had the opportunity to be the lead developer of the blockchain team.
I was the only technical person at Khepri Ventures, so it was my job to know everything about cryptocurrency, mining rigs, graphics cards, and Linux. My job title was "Systems Architect". I designed all of the components in our mining rigs, determined how much power we would need, ensured they had appropriate software, and wrote the appropriate software when it didn't exist. I also trained roughly two dozen employees on how to build and maintain mining equipments. My proudest accomplishment at this company was figuring out overclock settings for the GTX 1080 graphics cards mining Ethereum. I increased our overall production by around 20%, and cut our power costs by 45%.
I've done a handful of projects freelance, most being in wordpress but a few being in other languages. I enjoy Node.js, and I love using the MEAN stack. I also use a little bit of PHP Laravel, and am hoping to learn React when I get a break from school.
