About

Hey I am Aaron! Been a full stack software engineer for about 7 years now. I have worked across a number of technologies ranging from embedded architectures to data pipelines. There is no aspect of the industry that I will shy away from if it means that I get to learn a few new things along the way. Currently, I am focusing mostly on building out my skills with common patterns and trying to better internalize all of the usages/pros/cons of every approach. I am also making it a personal goal to try and practice strict TDD at all times.

This site is going to kind of act like my extended resume. Most of the same stuff that I would submit to a job, but with a little extra flourish!

Everything you see here is a single html page figured a simple resume-like format is a great way to create a small performant site. Previously this address was taken up by a ReactJS app. While it was pretty, I am pleasantly surprised that I was able to create another one that is more streamlined while being less than 10% the size!

Interviewing Resources Form

In my previous interviewing endeavors it has always been a struggle finding good interview prep resources. because of this I decided to create this simple Google form and sheet that aggregates good resources for those looking to build their skills in terms of interviewing for tech positions. Not really a development project I can take credit for but definitely something that I want to advertise where possible.

Form to add a new interviewing resource Sheet with all of the current resources added
