I’m a university student studying Cyber and Computer Security BSc (Hons). I’ve had a fascination for technology since I was young but I’ve never really known where I’d like to go with it. I started my cyber security degree because that’s where my interest lied during sixth form, however over the past couple of years I’ve engaged in multiple side projects which have allowed me to develop my understanding of programming through games modding and web development, and as a result of this – and working on Spiritum Duo – I’ve found I have a real passion for programming professionally. It’s an added bonus that the work I’m able to do here can have real world benefits to people. I’m always down to learn new skills and technologies, reflected in the development of my knowledge with regards to the technologies used in SD.
Previous experience (18th Oct 2021)
The majority of my work thus far has been solo, so I don’t have much experience working in a collaborative environment, or any experience using agile methodologies.
I’ve got a good working understanding of Python. I’ve used it in past projects and to automate some lengthy or monotonous tasks. I haven’t used it to build a web application. I do have an undestanding of web technologies through my understanding of web development using PHP.
I’ve got a good general understanding of JS. I’ve used it for past projects but nothing too major. I haven’t used any frontend libraries.
I’ve never used TypeScript before, so this is completely new to me.
