DareToProgram

This was my first CRUD application. This blog allowed me to manage posts and user subscriptions through a back end admin panel with ease. At the time, I was using Python alot to practice for technical interviews, so Django was my weapon of choice.

// Keep reading for more details on my experience ⬇️

0. University Of Victoria

Student
2014

After pursuing a degree in commerce for 2 years, I came across the world of software and technology and immediately shifted in that direction. I transferred in to the Computer Science program with a specialty in Software Systems and studied their the next 3 years.

1. UrsaCreative

Full Stack Developer
2018

In the spring of 2018 I began my position at UrsaCreative while pursueing my degree. I worked at the startup full time suring the summer and part-time during the school year. This position required everyone on the team to take on many roles and adapt quickly, which led to me managing software projects from inception to deployment. Outside of technical experience, I was able to broaden my horizons to client and project management.

2. Animikii Indigenous Technology

Software Developer
2019

In the summer of 2019 I took on a four month co-op at Animikii. Here I strengthened my technical skills working within a team of senior software developers and was blessed with the opportunity to give back to the Indigenous Community. After my co-op, I was offered a part time position during my final year at school. I then went on to work with Animikii as a software contractor and consultant on a regular basis.

3. Built Better Technology

Founder & CTO
2020

In early 2020 I went out on my own as a contract software developer & consultant. I formed Built Better Technology as the vehicle to do this. I worked with local software companies as well as with my own clients on web & software projects of all sizes. The early days of Built Better is when I created Building Blocks CMS, my own headless content management system for managing client websites. Building Blocks is an ongoing project that I'm aiming to release to other developers in 2020.
