About Me

Hello I'm Austin! A recent graduate of the University of Colorado and pre-med student turned programmer. I've always loved everything encompassing technology from dissecting how our smartphones work to making ecommerce websites. It wasn’t until a few summers ago when I took a C++ course for fun that I really thought about a programming career. After much contemplation and discussion with my Dad who is also a .NET programmer and a CIO, I decided to take a similar path. Since that decision I went from dabbling in software development to diving head first into everything from sitting in on data structure courses that I wasn’t enrolled in to finding summer coding jobs as an independent contractor. Additionally, I went on to attend a coding program called Coder Foundry in Charlotte North Carolina. At Coder Foundry we learned numerous programming technologies that we would hone throughout the program. Programming technologies I'm currently well versed in include C#, .NET, Visual Basic, LINQ, SQL, Javascript, AJAX, JQuery, Angular JS, Visual Basic, C++, MVC, Web Forms, Bootstrap, HTML, and CSS.
